Revenue-grade meters ensure accurate documentation of power transactions between generators, wholesale consumers, commercial/industrial loads, public utilities and municipalities.

New Resource Implementation
Trimark removes worry and guesswork from the meter-approval process.
Trimark’s revenue metering solutions include consulting, equipment and field support to ensure success. We help you design your metering architecture and communication network, select meter equipment, configure meters, fabricate panels, install them in the field, conduct point-to-point testing, and conduct independent certification.
After installation, we continue our support with automatic meter reading, meter data services, and maintenance services.
CAISO Revenue Meter Approval
In California, installation of a revenue meter for new generation must follow CAISO’s New Resource Implementation (NRI) process – more than 40 steps of approval and certification that span more than 200 days.
Through every step of the meter approval process, from the initial application to final certification, Trimark will be there to support you.
QF Conversion Support
When a Qualifying Facility (QF) enters a new contract to sell power in California, they must adhere to the CAISO Tariff and Business Practices Manual. This includes installing CAISO-approved revenue meters and data telemetry (RIG) devices (if >10MW). QF resources must follow a slightly-modified version of CAISO’s NRI process which includes requirements for revenue meters and RIGs. Trimark has successfully guided numerous QF facilities to compliance and continued revenue generation.
