Silver Spring expands partnership with Oklahoma Gas and Electric

San Diego, February 2, 2011 — Silver Spring Networks, a provider of smart grid platforms, announced that the company is expanding its partnership with Oklahoma Gas and Electric, Oklahoma’s largest electric utility.

The utility has deployed the Silver Spring CustomerIQ web portal to all customers equipped with a Silver Spring-enabled smart meter, providing them immediate access to insights about their energy usage.

OG&E is also expanding its work with Silver Spring as OG&E begins the second year of its demand response study serving 6,000 OG&E customers.

OG&E will leverage Silver Spring for installation, demand management software, in-home devices, online enrollment services and program management for the study.

The Silver Spring IP-based networking and applications platform, the Smart Energy Platform, forms the foundation for OG&E’s smart metering, customer portal, and DR study initiatives.

OG&E, by providing the CustomerIQ web portal to its entire smart meter customer base, has dramatically increased its smart grid leadership in consumer engagement, delivering customer participation, outreach, research and clear articulation of the benefits of deploying smart grid technology.

With the efficiencies created by the Positive Energy Together program, OG&E estimates it could avoid building two new 165MW peaking generation plants between now and 2016, a cost savings of up to $320 million over 10 years.

Interim results of OG&E’s study will be presented at the 2011 DistribuTECH conference at a session scheduled from 9:30-11 a.m. on Wednesday, February 2.
