Comisión Federal de Electricidad’s (CFE) picked Silver Spring Networks for its ‘Reducción de Pérdidas de Energía en Distribución’ (Loss Reduction Projects on Distribution) smart grid project in Mexico City’s Central District.

In partnership with Tecnologías EOS, under the Megacable and Hola Innovacion consortium, Silver Spring will deploy a canopy network across various residential and commercial areas of Mexico City’s Central District and provide connectivity solutions to cabinets which house a group of centralized meters.

The Silver Spring solution will reduce electricity theft for residents and businesses, while Tecnologías EOS will provide remote indoor displays to help these customers monitor their power usage. Silver Spring will also provide its multi-application IPv6 network and UtilityIQ software suite to connect and manage the individual cabinet meters.

Silver Spring will deploy this solution for about 140,000 residential and commercial customers within CFE’s Central District in Mexico City that serves about 2 million customers in total. CFE is the largest utility in the Americas, with more than 38 million customers over 16 divisions throughout Mexico.
