General Pacific and Itron Electric Meters can help you with Net or Bi-Directional Metering solutions. Meters are available with Net Metering Registers, which subtract power Received by the utility from the customer, from Delivered power, that is supplied by the utility to the customer. Meters are also available with Bi Directional Metering Registers, which display energy Received, Delivered, and the Net Difference. With the help of General Pacific, meters can be configured to display the value and a three letter ID of the value. Upon programming the meters, a simple “rEc”, “dEl”, and “nEt” can be used to notate values on the display, making the meters easy to read by the customer and meter readers.
