Asset Recovery

The Smart Grid and AMR and AMI integration are causing utilities to invest billions of dollars in equipment and infrastructure.

As 200,000,000 or more watt hour meters are being retired, there is intense pressure to return value from obsolete meters.  There is similar pressure to recover value from retired gas and water meters.  The ScrapSafe System has proved to be an effective partner with utility asset recovery departments.

In many cases utilities sell obsolete material to local scrap dealers.  When they sell legacy meters, they are generally paid the "mixed scrap" price.  This price covers the low-value glass and plastic elements but does not leverage the high-value copper components.  The ScrapSafe process separates all of the elements in retired meters and then sells them at the highest prevailing market prices.
