Smart Metering Grid Starts at Local Meters

Glendale is entering a new era by moving into the Smart Grid with the installation of new Smart electric and water meters.

Behavior is one of the most cost effective environmental strategies -- but consumers can't really change behaviors effectively without pertinent knowledge. The "Smart Grid" provides consumers with measurements and timely reporting that can give them the tools to make smart decisions about use of energy and water.

Advanced Metering Connects Infrastructure with a Smart Grid

In recent years, dry conditions and limitations on imported water supplies reduced California’s water resources to low levels, though rains this winter have begun replenishing depleted reservoirs, lakes and groundwater basins.

New technologies are the key to meeting California’s ongoing water challenges.

AMI Advanced Metering Infrastructure to Serve Customers

The new Smart Meters being installed in Glendale will be connected to a two-way communication network called Advanced Metering Infrastructure, or AMI.

This new metering system will serve customers in several important ways.

Smart Water Meters

New Smart water meters will provide frequent and accurate meter readings so customers can be alerted to possible water leaks in their home or business. Finding and repairing these leaks prevents high bills and wasted water while reducing damage to property.

Instant Monitoring of Electricity and Water Use

Additionally customers will have nearly instant access to how much electricity and water they are using instead of waiting up to two months to find out how much they have used.

Glendale’s move to the Smart Grid will help customers conserve more and be actively involved in their energy and water usage.
