Customer Driven Design of Smart Grid Capabilities


The Madison Gas and Electric Company’s (MGE’s) Customer Driven Design of Smart Grid Capabilities project involved the deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), a new distribution management system (DMS), and electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. MGE provided AMI meters to all medium-to-large commercial and industrial customers and a representative random sample of residential and small business customers within the utility’s service territory. Under a pilot project, MGE also installed 19 public EV charging stations and AMI meters to monitor at-home vehicle charging at 25 locations.
