Using RFID to Save Money for Natural Gas Service Providers

Published: February 25, 2013

Sempra Energy, a $12 billion Fortune 500 energy services firm that consists of Southern California Gas and San Diego Gas and Electric, is saving money by improving its ability to track gas meters using UHF RFID. Before implementing the RFID system, gas meters installed on an estimated 3,300 Southern California Gas customers had not been officially recorded by technicians, a process required to initiate billing. Hear how the RFID solution ensures that customers are billed, thereby reducing the paperwork and time spent tracking down unrecorded meters. And learn how the technology saves the company more than a million dollars annually, providing an almost immediate return on investment.
