Lowest Cost of Ownership

The lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) in the industry


Elster can offer a lower cost of ownership than anyone else in the industry. We’ve proven to be a better value through our operational efficiencies and innovations like our efficient RF LAN network which uses approximately 75% less energy to operate than most competing RF networks. Depending on the number of accounts you serve, that can translate to hundreds of gigawatts of reduced consumption, a greater return on your investment and a greener world.


Elster’s Smart Grid solutions are scalable to multi-million meter deployments while being equally cost-effective for smaller utilities or strategic, surgical deployments. Installation and maintenance costs are minimized because our meters handle the registration and network communication process automatically. Firmware upgrades are performed remotely. In addition, Elster’s hosted and software as a service (SaaS) options can minimize capital expense and reduce the need to hire additional IT staff.


All of this adds up to the lowest cost of ownership and a greater return on investment (ROI) on a superior Smart Grid solution.
