The Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company (OG&E) project involved system-wide deployment of a fully integrated advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solution and distribution of in-home devices to selected customers. OG&E also deployed a distribution management system, automated switching, and integrated volt/volt-ampere reactive (var) control. The project included an AMI-enabled study of consumer behavior in response to different forms of dynamic pricing and home area network technologies on an opt-in basis. Additionally, OG&E collaborated with University of Oklahoma faculty and students to deploy energy saving technologies within 46 buildings on the Norman, Oklahoma, campus and took advantage of opportunities for smart grid education and training.
