LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — Nov. 16, 2016 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced today that it has been selected as a key supplier of 4.6 million G3 Linky smart meters for the second phase of the program, which will begin in early 2017 and will run through 2018. Itron has also delivered 1.5 million Linky smart meters to Enedis (formerly ERDF), an electricity distribution network operator in France, for the first phase of the program.

Itron has been a leading partner in the Linky program from the beginning, including research and development efforts and the pilot project from 2008 to 2010. Supported by the local team working in close collaboration with Enedis, the meters are manufactured in Itron’s Chasseneuil, France facility.
 
“Itron’s commitment to quality and enthusiastic approach to the partnership have been key factors in all of our projects with Enedis. Our continued involvement and leadership role in this visionary program illustrates the confidence Enedis has in Itron and our high-quality, high-performing smart meters as well as our ability to deliver on schedule,” said Mark de Vere White, president of Itron’s electricity business line. “Itron is proud to be a part of the Linky program and to help Enedis realize its vision of a digital revolution with the deployment of smart grid technology in France.”

About the Linky Program

The Linky meter is the latest generation of electrical meters installed by Enedis. It is referred to as "communicating" because it allows information to be transmitted remotely. It will replace all electricity meters in France by 2021 for all private households (generally from 3 to 9 kVA), businesses (generally from 18 to 36 kVA) and local authorities (from 3 to 36 kVA).
