Building A Smart Grid In Rural Australia

Supplying electricity to over one million customers in southwestern Australia, Western Power selected Silver Spring Networks for a multi-million dollar Perth ‘Solar City’ program to trial 30 energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Using Silver Spring’s SilverLink solution, Western Power connected 11,000 homes and businesses, 2,200 in-home devices and 400 air conditioner units as part of the trial. Demonstrating how smart technologies can lower energy consumption, the trial achieved a 25% peak demand reduction in air conditioning alone.
