Project Summary:

The Town of Danvers’ Smart Grid Implementation Program includes advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and automated distribution equipment. Smart meters and AMI for Danvers’ residential, commercial, and industrial customers support time-based rate programs and a home energy network pilot. AMI is aimed at helping customers manage their energy usage, and Danvers hopes to reduce meter reading costs and air pollution by reducing truck rolls for meter reading. Benefits from distribution automation include better reliability and lower line losses.
