Summary:

Since 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the electricity industry have jointly
invested over $7.9 billion in 99 cost‐shared Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) projects to
modernize the electric grid, strengthen cybersecurity, improve interoperability, and collect an
unprecedented level of data on improvements in grid operations and customer services.
Central Maine Power’s (CMP) SGIG project has produced innovations in customer services,
improvements in business operations, and lessons‐learned that will be used for guiding future
smart grid projects.
