Project Summary:

Southern California Edison (SCE), a utility company based in Rosemead, CA, serving more than 5 million electric customers in the Southern California region, started its Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) program for the Smart Grid Installation, called the ‘SmartConnect’ program in 2009 [1, 2]. The utility had signed a contract to purchase smart meters and communication equipments from Itron, a Liberty Lake, WA based technology provider [1, 3]. These meters would use the Zigbee wireless communication technology [3]. SCE’s SmartConnect program would allow real time pricing information to be available to customers that can help them efficiently plan and control their electric usage and hence result in energy and cost savings [4, 5].

According to [6], 5 million existing electric meters are expected to be replaced with “smart” meters between 2009 and 2012, with a project cost of $1.6 billion (2008-12).
