Modesto Irrigation District

Automated Smart Water Project

Modesto Irrigation District (MID) provides electricity to more than 113,000 customers in California’s Central Valley. As part of a smart grid initiative to improve operational efficiency, MID selected Silver Spring’s IP-based advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) to support commercial and residential customers. With Silver Spring’s reliable two-way communications and real-time grid insight, MID has automated processes delivering better customer service and savings with a standards-based platform to support future needs.

With smart metering technology, we now have the capabilities to develop innovative and industry-leading energy usage management programs for our customers while also increasing operational efficiencies. Silver Spring’s open, standards-based platform has been key to MID’s success – enabling advanced smart grid services through powerful and continuous two-way connectivity.
