Smart metering for Massachusetts

[img:Mass_0.jpg| ]Boston, MA, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- January 18, 2008 - Smart meters and smart grids are set to come to Massachusetts, under a new energy plan approved last week by the state Senate’s Ways and Means Committee.

The plan calls for each electric distribution company, by September 1, 2008, to file a proposed plan with the department of public utilities to establish a 6-month pilot program for a smart grid that utilizes the electric delivery system, advanced (“smart”) meters, and other advanced technology to operate an integrated grid network communication system in a limited geographic area. Each smart grid pilot program shall include, but not be limited to advanced meters that provide real time measurement and communication of energy consumption, implementation of phone and e-mail notification systems to warn those customers of high prices so they can reduce their usage accordingly, automated load management systems embedded within current demand side management programs and remote status detection and operation of distribution system equipment.
