Smart Grid Initiative

Abstract

Lakeland Electric's (Lakeland's) Smart Grid Initiative involved the deployment of smart meters and communications infrastructure. These technologies supported implementation of time-based rate programs and advanced customer service options, which were also part of the project scope. Lakeland's project included a consumer behavior study (CBS) assessing the impacts of time-based rate programs.
