EZ METER OVERVIEW
This wild and crazy adventure actually got started before 1 of the 2 present owners were out of diapers. Dean Davidge started Davidge Controls in 1982 doing access control panels. At an install at a marina in the mid 90’s he witnessed an argument break out over a live aboard tenant paying the same electric amount as someone who occassionally used his boat. Obviously a live aboard tenant uses a whole lot more electricity, but how do you manage that? The utility company won’t bring electric service near water, so what were marinas to do? This prompted Dean to investigate solutions, which morphed into the birth of EZ Meter.
Over the years Dean spent a lot of his time and energy perfecting a solution that was reliable, durable and affordable. As things started to grow in 2005 and 2006 Dean brought on Ryan to help. Ryan helped grow the company and brand awareness while developing relationships throughout the industry. As Dean’s desire to travel and do tradeshows waned and Ryan’s knowledge of the industry grew a natural partnership developed and in 2017 Davidge Controls shut down and EZ Meter was established as its own concentrated company. Ryan bought into the company and we all work together to run things today.
Today EZ Meter is focused on growing our distribution line in key strategic market segments. Within the marina market EZ Meter supplies all the electric Kwh submeters for Eaton Corp division of pedestal manufacture Marina Power and Light. This partnership is the back bone of our company and has afforded us the opportunity to grow. Because of this relationship EZ Meter now makes our own line of current transformers (CT’s).
The next market segment to tackle after marinas is multi-family housing. For this target market EZ Meter partnered with Meter Technology Werks out of Tampa Florida. Their market space knowledge and turnkey capabilities really makes the most sense for EZ Meter and we couldn’t be happier to grow with the reputable and skilled team at MTW.
Strategic partnerships have already been established with NextCentury radio where EZ Meter actually powers their radio eliminating the need for a battery! This is the first such product integration to hit the multi-family housing market and we can’t wait to see where it goes!

CA Weights & Measures
We can’t very well be a billing company if we are not accurate. California has one of the stickest requirements in the country and we happily have them verify our meters….regularly!
The rest of the country prefers meters meet the accuracy portion of ANSI C12.2. This standard was written for Utility Meters, not with submeters in mind, so it is important to note that we meet the accuracy portion of this standard calling for less than 1% error.
Hawaii Energy Rebate Program
Hawaii energy cost keep going up, and in order to motivate locals to conserve energy Hawaii Energy put together a rebate program for multiple ways of accomplishing this task….submetering being the most effective way to reduce electric waste made the list and EZ Meter is a proud part of the program!
Being a small company provides a lot of flexibility in what we can offer our clients, but we can’t do it all. Without the help and support of our partners we wouldn’t be where we are today. We are eternally grateful for their support and look forward to working with everyone as we grow in the future.
