Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative picks Siemens, eMeter for smart grid project

Orlando, Fla., July 5, 2011 — Siemens Energy, Inc. and eMeter Corp. have teamed up to supply Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative with eMeter EnergyIP meter data management system.

SMECO is one of the ten largest customer-owned electric cooperatives in the nation. Using project management capabilities, Siemens will integrate the MDMS with SMECO's key operational and customer service systems.

This integration will assist SMECO in reaching the EmPOWER Maryland goals set forth by Gov. Martin O'Malley, which target a 15 percent reduction in total electric usage on a per capita basis by 2015.

Siemens will begin implementation of eMeter EnergyIP as part of SMECO's smart meter project. SMECO's project encompasses an MDMS, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technology, and a Web portal solution.

SMECO has chosen to work with Sensus to provide the AMI network; Siemens will work hand-in-hand with Sensus to link the AMI system with eMeter EnergyIP.
