CPS Energy’s Smart Grid Initiative is a major upgrade to our electrical grid, allowing us to keep pace with the 21st century demands now being placed on it. When completed in 2018, the smart grid will allow automated, two-way communication between customers and CPS Energy. This investment will support increased electric and gas reliability, boost efficiency and reduce costs, better integrate renewable sources of power into the grid, reduce emissions, increase your privacy and give you the first ever daily look at the energy you buy through My Energy Portal instead of waiting for a monthly bill. As of May 2016, we have installed over 500K electric and gas smart meters to our community. CPS Energy is a member of Smart Grid Consumer Collaborative, a nonprofit organization that works to educate the public about the benefits of the smart grid.
