Den Smart Metern gehört die Zukunft-Hero 16-9

Smart meters are the future.

The smart meter rollout for Werke am Zürichsee AG began in March of this year: ten to twelve meter changes per day and the development of media meters for gas and water. The plan is to replace 19 000 electricity meters as well as 6000 water and 3000 gas meters. The execution is carried out by our ICT specialists.

The Energy Strategy 2050 stipulates that by the end of 2027, at least 80 per cent of all households and businesses in the grid area of an electricity supplier must be retrofitted with intelligent electricity metering systems, known as smart meters. Our technical teams are well-versed in the field and actively support Swiss energy suppliers in retrofitting projects.
In the pilot phase for Werke am Zürichsee AG, 80 smart meters and 30 media meters were installed last year. The result was very satisfactory and therefore we were awarded the contract to carry out the complete replacement in the municipalities of Zollikon, Küsnacht and Erlenbach for Werke am Zürichsee AG.

I find cablex to be a very committed and reliable partner. We discuss all topics openly and work out the best solution together. The technicians give their all, and I appreciate this professional and appreciative cooperation very much.

Our range of tasks.

cablex can retrieve the orders very quickly and easily from software operated by Werke am Zürichsee AG and subsequently arrange appointments with the electricity customer directly. After the initial inspection of the respective property, our team of technicians will carry out meticulously detailed planning in order to minimise the time needed for the actual meter replacement later on. This includes, among other things, the letters to the owners of the properties, detailed appointment arrangements and clarification of the specific procedures of a meter change. Our tasks also include logistical coordination and operating a hotline for customer queries.
