Dominica is a country in the Caribbean and part of North America.

Dominica produces about 12mw of power, using a combination of diesel powered generators and hydro generation. A very large geothermal plant is in the early stages that will empower them to export electricity. Dominica uses both STS (S. African Token Based) prepaid meters and is installing Elster MAS AMI meters with and without disconnects. Dominica is well known throughout the Caribbean as a leader in Prepaid/Pay-As-You-Go electricity. Dominica is the first successful implementation of the Elster AMI "smart" meters combined with L+G STS meters for prepaid power in the region. Utiliflex's Juice platform provides a single platform for prepaid customer management, outside vendors, GIS, and AMI/Smart meter two way communications using standard web interfaces, SMS/Text messaging, smart phones and IVR for staff, vendor and customer communications.

The Elster MAS meters use a 900mhz and Zigbee mesh to communicate, using Cell Modems and land lines for back-haul
