Itron Acquires Silver Spring NetworksLearn More
Silver Spring Networks will partner with Con Edison and Orange & Rockland (O&R) Utilities to support its Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) plan for electric and gas customers. The program is expected to connect approximately 3.9 million electric and 1.3 million gas customers through the deployment of Silver Spring’s multi-application networking, data, and control platform. This advanced technology platform is expected to increase control and convenience by automating customer turn-ons; it also will improve reliability by letting the company know immediately if a customer is out of service. It will benefit the environment by measuring the voltage supplied to customers more accurately, saving energy, and it will facilitate increased customer engagement in managing energy usage by giving customers more information about their energy usage patterns, enabling customers to make smarter energy choices.
