Trilliant and Manx Utilities Begin Rolling Our Smart Electricity Meters Across the Isle of Man

By Stefania Viscusi

Upgrading power management is a critical step in transforming today’s energy landscape. To assist the Isle of Man with meeting its government’s Climate Change Plan to achieve net zero by 2050, Trilliant has announced it partnered with Manx Utilities to roll-out smart electricity meters for customers on the island.

Trilliant provides solutions for advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), smart grid, smart cities and IIoT. The company has already launched deployments similar to this in Aruba, Malaysia and the Dominican Republic. For this rollout they’ll work with Manx Utilities and offer a new AMI platform for 50,000 residential, industrial and commercial properties.

Manx Utilities first deployed Trilliant’s technology in 2021 to provide enhanced coverage, capacity, network longevity, stringent security, and overall performance across the island.

The new AMI platform will replace current legacy electric meters and enable smart grid technologies for future deployment of smart street lighting and other initiatives.

The meters are a pay-as-you-go system that customers can access using Manx Utilities’ SmarterLiving app. Through the app, they can see updates on their energy usage and top up their credit, while also better understanding how they can work to save on energy consumption and costs.

The meters will also alert Manx Utilities about power outages and energy use patterns to improve outage response times, reduce waste and fine-tune energy production.

“Manx Utilities is a wonderful partner that demonstrates how utilities can deliver forward-thinking smart solutions with benefits for businesses and residents,” said Tom Tipple, Managing Director of the Europe, Middle East, and Africa Region, for Trilliant “The Smart Island concept we jointly developed will focus on the efficiency of utilizing one powerful communication network to support a number of energy-efficient initiatives while minimizing cost.”
