SAIC provides smart grid as a service to four Alaska villages

McLean, Va., January 30, 2012 — Science Applications International Corp. won a contract by Intelligent Energy Systems for smart grid infrastructure solutions for four Alaskan villages.

SAIC and IES implemented SAIC's Smart Grid as a Service (SGS) offering at these locations, and services have been on-line and running since December 12, 2011.

SAIC's SGS provides a comprehensive, affordable and integrated one-stop resource for utilities. The integrated hardware and software solution provides advanced metering infrastructure, outage alerts, remote connection capabilities, as well as lays the foundation for the future integration of fuel, water, temperature and alternative energy metering.

This smart grid infrastructure will provide a complete community energy management infrastructure, which is needed to lower energy costs and reduce dependence on expensive diesel fuel that devastates local village economies.
