About Us

Pylon is a comprehensive utility management platform powering millions of smart meters in some of the world’s largest emerging markets.

We transform conventional water and electricity utilities in emerging markets into efficient, interoperable and data driven ones. With a myriad of challenges from energy waste, theft and tampering to an increase in CO2 emissions, Pylon takes a wholesome approach to tackling these utility management challenges in emerging markets.

Our platform is tailored for the needs of emerging markets by focusing on 4 pillars

Comprehensiveness
We offer a comprehensive utility management platform that caters to the unique needs of emerging markets, covering all aspects of loss reduction, load management and revenue collection.
Affordability
We are pioneering a smart-meter-as-a-service solution that simplifies cost of deployment, operation and maintenance of smart metering solutions into a single recurring fee per meter, with no upfront investment.
Interoperability
Our solution is meter agnostic. Allowing emerging markets to leapfrog from a fragmented legacy infrastructure to a seamless modern solution.
Energy disaggregation enabled
By partnering with meter developers to deploy novel metering hardware that more opportunistically records every moment of utility consumption, we make energy disaggregation a reality in emerging markets.
