MCCo Governing Board Authorizes $2 Million Investment In Smart Grid Technology

August 25, 2011

In order to implement a successful demand-side management program, tracking energy usage patterns is extremely important. On Augsut 25, 2011, MCCo's governing body authorized an investment of $2 million dollars in smart grid technology. Currently, MCCo utilizes approximately 500 steam, chilled water and electric meters to record energy usage. However, these meters are read manually every month.

This investment will automate MCCo's utility metering and billing system to provide minute by minute montoring of the supply steam, chilled water and electricity. Over time, additional meters will be installed to provide greater granularity. The new system will allow MCCo and its Members to make informed decisions about using energy in a responsible way, including controlling Green House Gas emissions.
