Beginning in spring 2019, the City of Aspen will be initiating a new project called AIM, or Aspen Intelligent Metering. AIM is an upgrade to the City’s entire metering system, which will modernize all water and electric meters along with the utility’s technology and infrastructure, while adding a variety of customer benefits.
The project entails new meter installation for all electric customers and the addition of new technology to water meters, replacing them only when the current meter is not AIM compatible. All customers will be contacted prior to meter upgrades. Brief coordinated disruption of water and electric service will occur during the installation process.
PHASE 1 Project Initiation: network design and infrastructure put in place, command center installation and configuration
PHASE 2 Meter upgrades and/or replacements, training, and system verification
PHASE 3 Customer portal launch
Utilities has budgeted $1.8 million for the initial project implementation, which is offset by a $200,000 CORE grant. The remainder comes from the utilities’ capital project budget.
