In the dynamic landscape of California's multifamily apartment industry, regulations and consumer protection measures play a vital role in ensuring accurate utility billing. California Weights and Measures has implemented a regulation to address the need for precise water meter readings in cases where meters are installed in inaccessible locations. This blog post explores the benefits of Truety's water submetering system in meeting California's submetering requirements while improving quality, reducing costs, and building customer trust.

Why is California Regulation SB-7 Important?

California Regulation SB-7 emphasizes the significance of consumer protection in utility billing. To address potential inaccuracies arising from inaccessible water meter installations, the regulation requires the installation of a digital water meter display in each apartment unit. Although this requirement safeguards consumers' interests, additional hardware in every unit adds significant cost to a water submeter deployment.

Truety, powered by QMC + GWF, offers a comprehensive solution tailored to meet the unique demands of the California submetering market. With its California Weights and Measures-approved centralized lobby display, the Truety system presents a viable alternative to individual unit displays, thereby streamlining the installation process and improving aesthetics while reducing expenses.

Key Advantages of the Truety System:

  1. Enhanced Accuracy: Truety employs utility-grade, encoded water submeters that ensure precise and reliable readings. This accuracy minimizes billing errors and instills confidence among both tenants and property managers.
  2. Cost-Effectiveness: By eliminating the need for individual unit displays, Truety significantly reduces hardware, installation, and programming costs. This cost optimization enables developers to implement a high-quality and compliant submetering solution without compromising their financial bottom line.
  3. Wireless Encoded Technology: Leveraging state-of-the-art wireless encoded meter readings over LoRaWAN, the Truety system eliminates the need for physical wiring in each unit. This wireless infrastructure simplifies the installation process, minimizes disruptions, and offers greater flexibility in meter placement.
  4. Customer Trust and Satisfaction: Truety not only meets regulatory requirements but also fosters trust between property managers and tenants. Transparent and accurate utility billing promotes a positive tenant experience, resulting in improved tenant satisfaction and long-term retention.

As California's multifamily apartment developers strive to comply with regulatory requirements while delivering exceptional customer experiences, Truety emerges as a reliable and efficient solution. By leveraging a centralized lobby display, wireless encoded technology, and utility-grade submeters, the Truety system enables accurate, cost-effective, and trustworthy utility billing.
