Oklahoma Gas and Electric picks SAS solution to support smart grid

Cary, N.C., January 28, 2011 — OG&E recently licensed SAS Forecast Server to help analyze smart meter interval data from 782,000 accounts in Oklahoma and western Arkansas.

The more than 100-year-old utility launched a three-year system-wide deployment of smart grid technology in February 2010. Year one of a two-year demand response study involving thousands of customers in the Oklahoma City area is complete.

SAS will enable OG&E to operate more efficiently and leverage more than $350 million in smart grid investments. The Cadmus Group Inc., a leading energy and environmental consultancy, designed an analytical solution for OG&E based on SAS technology.

Johnston noted that OG&E has several initiatives underway to meet the 2020 generation objective. The company recently jumped from a rank of 53 to 17 in the 2010 IDC Research UtiliQ study, which ranks utility companies’ performance in: productivity, renewable energy, smart grid initiatives, demand response/energy efficiency and IT investment.
