AT&T combines new service plans with SmartSynch's SmartMetering(TM) solutions to bring smart grid technology to the home

AT&T* has announced a new alternative for electric utility companies looking to provide the benefits of smart grid technology to the residential sector.

With this new solution from AT&T and SmartSynch, electric utility companies will now be able to concentrate on efficient electricity delivery rather than being distracted by building, maintaining, expanding and upgrading a communications network. This new solution offers a cost-effective point-to-point configuration model in which each meter communicates directly with the utility over the AT&T wireless network.

Florida International University (FIU) has saved $14 million in energy costs over the course of a 15-year energy efficiency project through its ongoing work with sustainability leader Johnson Controls.
