Project Summary:

The Modesto Irrigation District’s (MID) Smart Deployment and Installation project involves installation of smart meters, implementation of customer interface systems, and automation of distribution substations. The smart meter deployment covers the Mountain House Development, a single isolated area with 3,348 customer sites. The project includes a Web portal to enable the customers to monitor their electricity consumption and costs. The project aims to reduce peak demand, system-wide losses, outage duration, and frequency, while improving voltage control. The smart meters and Web portal allows MID to consider implementation of time-based rate programs in the future.
