Project Summary:

The Pacific Northwest Generating Cooperative (PNGC) is implementing a project that includes 10 distribution cooperatives. The cooperatives are deploying advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) assets including smart meters and two-way communication networks. AMI enables automated meter reading, which reduces meter operation costs, fuel usage for truck rolls, and air pollution. Several of the cooperatives are deploying direct load control devices. The direct load control programs offer customers a way to lower their electricity bill and provide the utility with a tool to manage peak load.
