Project Summary:

City of Auburn SmartGRID project involves a city-wide deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and implementation of distribution automation equipment, which includes circuit switches, capacitors, voltage regulators, fault indicators, smart relays, and equipment sensors. The City of Auburn (Auburn) expects the smart meters to reduce meter-reading costs, lower vehicle emissions, and enable advanced electric services for its customers. These services include an enhanced Web portal and the introduction of time-based rate programs. Overall, the project aims to reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve reliability, reduce outage duration, reduce peak loads, and reduce overall energy usage across the Auburn’s service territory.
