Outage Detection/Reporting

A system utilizing smart meters and AMI that can notify a utility of customer power outages when the power to meters is interrupted. Generally speaking, this can be done by utilizing meters that can send a "last gasp" signal to the head-end system upon losing power, or by periodically polling meters to check status.[1]
