Under the agreement, SMUD, the sixth largest community-owned electric utility in terms of customers served, plans to deploy the technology-rich Landis+Gyr FOCUS® family of smart meters for residential, industrial and commercial customers throughout their service area. Smart metering solutions, expected to revolutionize energy management and grid reliability, provide a two-way flow of data between customer meters and utility back-end systems. With this two-way data flow, utilities will be able to offer customers a broad array of new pricing, demand response, and energy automation options that enhance the efficiency and reliability of the electric grid. Customers will benefit from more information, expanded choices, simpler and smarter management of their energy as well as the potential to reduce the environmental impact of their energy use.
