The City of Leesburg's (Leesburg) Smart Grid Investment Grant project involves a city-wide deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), new customer systems, and expansion of distribution automation capabilities. Leesburg is providing consumer education to help customers use the new devices and usage information to their full potential. The project also automates and increases the efficiency of portions of the electric distribution system through the deployment of automated voltage capacitors, fault indicators, and automated reclosers. These devices improve power quality, reduce line losses, and reduce the duration and number of customers affected by power outages.
