The City began its Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) upgrades in 2018, with plans for completion by 2023. (AMI) is an integrated system of smart meters, communication networks, and data management systems that enables two-way communication between utilities and customers. This project is the first step in modernizing not only our electric grid but our water metering system as well. These improvements will open the City of Vermillion up for future upgrades and advancements. This system has multiple benefits to both consumers and utilities alike.
