Working with Silver Spring Networks, AEP Ohio has deployed over 130,000 smart meters for its gridSMART® Demonstration Project, an initiative to serve customers more efficiently, reliably and securely, while empowering them to better manage energy costs. Supporting multiple smart grid applications on a single network, Silver Spring gives AEP the ability to benefit from advanced metering infrastructure, distribution automation, and home area networking, and enable new technologies, such as smart appliances and plug-in electric vehicles.

Our advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) has given us a springboard to other smart grid applications, including distribution automation (da). With all applications, including our existing back office systems, fully integrated on a single, common network, AEP has eliminated duplicate deployment efforts and lowered our overall operations and maintenance costs.
