OG&E Electric Services, a utility serving 765,000 customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas, and smart grid infrastructure experts Silver Spring Networks, announced the successful completion of the initial phase of a Smart Grid technology pilot project.

The project involved the deployment of Silver Spring Networks’ network infrastructure and the Greenbox energy management web-based portal in 25 homes in northwest Oklahoma City, OK, U.S. In addition, meters connected to Silver Spring Networks’ advanced technology were installed in about 6600 apartments in the same area to allow remote initiation and termination of service.

OG&E selected the pilot program location in northwest Oklahoma City due to the area’s historically high number of service calls, approximately 10,000 per year. Using SmartPower monitors and Silver Spring Networks’ networking infrastructure, OG&E was able to respond to service requests and remotely reconnect service during outages in less than 10 seconds. Previously, the process required a field representative to drive to the location then obtain a reading and complete any maintenance work on the meter in person.

OG&E's SmartPower project also empowers customers to better manage their energy consumption by helping them view information about pricing and energy demand in real time, through the Greenbox energy management portal. By partnering with Silver Spring Networks and Greenbox Technology, OG&E allowed customers in the pilot to monitor their minute-by-minute energy usage and adjust habits accordingly.
