A Tradition Of Excellence
Grid One Solutions was announced in August 2011 as the new company name for VSI Meter Services, Inc. VSI was created in Maryland in 1990 as a minority-owned business with a strong local identity. The business grew quickly and developed a solid regional reputation. VSI successfully began reading meters for both Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) and PECO Energy. As these utilities began automating their meter reading, VSI was the natural choice to perform the field installation and deployment. Grid One is proud of the fact that we are still providing dedicated service to these initial clients.
As the quality of VSI's services became recognized on a larger scale, the company was acquired by PECO Energy and then purchased in 2003 by Asplundh. VSI is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of UtiliCon Solutions, an Asplundh company.
On February 1, 2012, Utility Meter Services, Inc. (UMS) merged its skilled work force and service capabilities with Grid One, nearly doubling its size and positioning Grid One as one of the largest meter services contractors in North America.
Grid One continues the traditions of excellence established by VSI and UMS while paving the way in best-in-class service for metering, data and automation deployment projects.
