The Cobb Electric Membership Corp (Cobb EMC) project includes the installation of a fully integrated advanced metering system across the service territory. The installation includes smart meters, enhanced communications infrastructure and availability of in-home displays and direct load control devices. The project aims to reduce peak electricity demand, overall energy usage, outage durations, and operations and maintenance costs. The project implements two-way communication and utility applications to: (1) allow customers to view their energy consumption at their convenience through the customer Web portal and in-home displays, (2) allow Cobb EMC to manage, measure, and verify targeted demand reduction, and (3) provide the utility with automated notifications indicating the scope and location of customer outages.
