The World's 'First Smart Grid City'

Boulder, Colorado, has become the world's "first fully functioning smart grid enabled city".

The utility company will now be able to read meters remotely, and in-home energy monitoring platforms will be available to houses on the smart grid.

"The $100 million venture ties together all the automated functions of SmartGridCity including: switching power through fully automated substations; re-routing power around bottlenecked lines; detecting power outages and proactively identifying outage risks. The deployment integrated more than 20 applications, 95 new interfaces and more than 300 test cases."
