In order to better serve its 1.2 million customers and meet Maryland’s aggressive energy efficiency and conservation goals, Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) selected Silver Spring Networks’ SilverLink solutions to streamline operations, improve customer service and increase reliability. With Silver Spring’s IPv6-based smart grid network, BGE has projected cost savings of more than $2.5 billion for customers through smart grid applications delivered on a single, unified grid.

Silver Spring’s networking platform has helped BGE enhance the services we can offer our customers, allowing them to be more efficient energy consumers. In addition to streamlining operations and improving our grid reliability, smart metering technology gives us the capability to remotely turn meters on and off – greatly reducing truck rolls.
