Winning “Smart Grid Project of the Year,” Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) relied on Silver Spring Networks’ standards-based infrastructure for its SmartSacramento initiative. Silver Spring helped SMUD, the nation’s sixth largest customer-owned utility, deliver a networked grid to increase system efficiency and reliability and allow customers to better manage energy usage.
