City Utilities of Springfield, MO, a multi-service utility delivering electricity, natural gas, and water services needed a way to provide timely data about consumption and efficiency to customers across its three different service offerings. While existing technology offered visibility into gas and electricity consumption for the utility and its customers, the options for managing water usage were limited. City Utilities selected Silver Spring Networks to deploy a smart grid triple play: an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) that would help the utility improve operational efficiencies across all three of its service offerings while empowering City Utilities’ residential and commercial customers to make better energy and water usage decisions.

By enabling City Utilities to collect timely and accurate usage data, SilverLink has helped us to modernize our meter operations while increasing customer engagement and satisfaction. As a multi-commodity utility with electric, gas and water customers, we can leverage SilverLink to power multiple applications on a unified platform with the flexibility to support future applications as our needs evolve.
