Staff explaining the evolution of the Village Energy Smart Meter

Village Energy’s core belief is that access to stable power supply is the cornerstone of a thriving community. Within remote communities that already have access to a power grid, supply is more often than not, unreliable. They are addressing this through the implementation of highly advanced technology.
