City of Glendale
City-owned Glendale Water and Power (GWP) has completed its smart meter installation and is implementing a suite of new offerings to improve operational efficiencies and help customers save energy and manage their electric bills. With $20 million in Smart Grid Investment Program (SGIG) funds, the municipal utility has been able to replace all 85,000 electric meters in Glendale well ahead of schedule. Without the DOE funding, completion of our smart meter deployment would have been a few more years out and would have not included some of the technologies and capabilities that we now have available, said Glenn Steiger, GWPs General Manager.
