Florida Power & Light Company

Energy Smart Florida

Abstract

The Florida Power & Light (FPL) project is deploying advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distribution automation, new electricity pricing programs, and advanced monitoring equipment for the transmission system. AMI supports two-way communication between FPL and its 3 million consumers receiving smart meters associated with the DOE grant, providing detailed information about electricity usage and the ability to implement new electricity pricing programs. New distribution automation devices expand the functionality of FPL’s distribution system to increase reliability, reduce energy losses, and reduce operations and maintenance costs. Synchrophasor and line monitoring devices help increase the reliability and security of the transmission system.
