The United States Patent and Trademark Office affirmed once more the validity of electric meter patents owned by TransData, Inc., in response to requests issued by an anonymous electric meter manufacturer and General Electric, a press release on StockHouse stated on April 16.
The patents covered digital electric meters designed by the company, which feature an internal wireless communications module and antenna.
TransData’s smart meter patents have been the subject of a contentious legal battle involving patent infringement, including defendants such as Oklahoma Gas & Electric, Co.; Oncor Electric Delivery (an Energy Future Holdings Corp. company); CenterPoint Energy; San Diego Gas & Electric Co.; Denton County Electric Cooperative, Inc.; Texas-New Mexico Power Co.; Denton Municipal Utilities; and Tri-County Electric Cooperative, Inc.
