Oklahoma Gas and Electric Case Study

May 2011

Located in the heart of ?Tornado Alley,? Oklahoma Gas & Electric Companys (OG&E) electric grid faces significant challenges from severe weather, hot summers, and about 2% annual load growth. To better control costs and manage electric reliability under these conditions, OG&E is pursuing demand response strategies made possible by implementation of smart grid technologies, tools, and techniques from 2010?2012. The objective is to engage customers in lowering peak demand using smart technologies in homes and businesses and to achieve greater efficiencies on the distribution system. The immediate goal: To defer two 165 MW power plants currently planned for construction in 2015 and 2016.

National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Case Study

May 2011

Electric cooperatives play an important role in the U.S. energy infrastructure, delivering electricity to 44 million consumers across over 70% of the geography of the country every day. Implementing smart grid technology is seen by co-ops as a cost-effective way to improve reliability, streamline the restoration of electricity following outages and improve customer service. At the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), an Arlington, VA-based organization that provides services to more than 900 not-for-profit electric cooperatives nationwide, work is underway to study the impacts of smart grid technologies that will reach more than 700,000 consumers in 12 states.
