The GridWise Alliance and the Smart Grid Policy Center, released its Grid Modernization Index, which evaluates and ranks states based on their progress in modernizing their electric systems with smart grid technologies.

The GMI applies a clearly defined set of criteria to evaluate the progress of state grid modernization efforts in three key areas: policy, customer engagement and grid operations. The report highlights the 15 states that scored the highest.

California and Texas tied for the highest overall score, followed by Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania. Arizona, the District of Columbia, Ohio, Nevada, Illinois, Florida, Virginia, Oklahoma, Vermont and Maine complete the top fifteen.

The announcement was made at the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) Summer Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
