The gridSMART demonstration project is where it all begins. Better communications between the meter and the grid helps AEP improve the quality and reliability of their services for residential and business customers.

As these customers know more about what power they are using when, they can take a more active role in their energy usage. In many cases, this extra attention can lead to lower costs on their electric bill. The partnership marks yet another advancement for GE’s Smart Grid technologies. And, it comes at an exciting time for utilities that are helping the next generation of the electrical grid take shape.
