City of Glendale Project Description


U.S. Department of Energy


The City of Glendale??s Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Smart Grid Initiative project involves -wide deployment of advanced meters, use of customer systems and in-home displays, installation of equipment systems, and management of distributed energy storage. The project aims to reduce peak loads, overall electricity use, and operations and maintenance costs while increasing distribution efficiency and reliability. The project implements secure wireless communications to (1) allow customers to view their electricity consumption through Web portals and displays at any time, and (2) allow Glendale to manage, measure, and verify targeted reduction during peak periods. In addition to the AMI deployment, Glendale is upgrading selected feeders with equipment to improve the operational efficiency as well as reliability.
