A system for providing remote monitoring of electricity consumption is provided. In one embodiment the system may comprise electric meters, communication devices having a unique address and defining a wireless communication network, and a site controller. Each electric meter may be configured to measure electricity consumption of a load. Each communication device may be associated with one of the electric meters and configured to receive electricity consumption data and generate a transmit message using a predefined communication protocol being implemented by the wireless communication network. The transmit message may comprise the unique identifier and electricity consumption data. The site controller may be configured for communication with the wireless communication network and configured to receive the transmit message from one of the communication devices, identify the electric meter associated with the transmit message, and provide information related to the transmit message to a WAN for delivery to a computer.
