      The project is known as AMIT  or the Advanced Metering Infrastructure Team,
      They have several projects working, meter features (finished we think), HAN "Home area Network",RMI Retail market interface (this is the web site that you can go and look at your rates utilization and consumption figures). The will also be working on security of the network and of the web sites, audit structures and data storage.

      I started working on this a couple of years back and some pretty good features and technologies have been put into the system as well as the adoption of open standards (YEA) for the network. Texas will have one of the most advanced metering infrastructures and have adopted more open standards then just about anyplace in the world when finished. 

      The utilities in southern california and Ontario started pushing for this and it took a while for the meter manufactures and utilities to get with the program but things are moving right along.

      See the Green Grid, UtilityAMI and ansi c12.22 for the latest.

      The technology would have really helped after the hurricane speeding the identification of repair sites.

      If you go to the PUC website and look for project 34610 that would be a good place to start. there are a lot of materials and responses to go through.

      Actually they are in the process of changing the meters, The smart meter initiative at the PUC has been a long hard battle but the new meters will have significant features available to the home owner not just the utility.  Current hearings are being held on the HAN or Home Area Network support of the system and the standards that are proposed to interface with it.

      The Itron Openway system that is proposed for the Centerpoint deployment is one of the most advanced, open standards supported systems developed to date.
