San Jose, CA – June 29, 2017 – Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE: SSNI) today announced its selection for an advanced metering program with Grant County Public Utility District (Grant PUD). Grant PUD is a public power corporation that generates and sells electricity across a 2,777-square mile service area in Central Washington and the Pacific Northwest. Silver Spring’s standards-based Gen5 network platform will connect approximately 47,000 Grant PUD advanced metering customers to help deliver operational savings, improve service reliability, and enable greater energy efficiency.
“As the backbone of power distribution in the U.S., public power needs technology that is flexible enough to meet its own set of unique challenges,” said Chuck Allen, Public Affairs Officer for Grant PUD. “As a proven end-to-end provider of standards-based networks for the smart grid value chain, Silver Spring’s technology will be integral in the success of the Grant PUD roll-out.”
“We see this program as additional momentum in a recent wave of municipal and public power communities planning to modernize their infrastructure through powerful two-way communications. By deploying a standards-based and future-proofed network, backed by Silver Spring’s professional support services, rural communities can deploy advanced meter solutions more rapidly and successfully,” said Craig Lawson, SVP – North America, Silver Spring Networks. “We are excited to deliver this deployment to Grant PUD, and are committed to delivering a system that has been designed to fit public power members’ requirements.”
