Introducing the Future of Energy in Alameda
Transforming the Grid
Alameda’s electric grid has served us well for more than a century, but the time has come for a modernized system capable of meeting 21st century demands for real-time data and energy sources like solar, battery storage and electric vehicles. We need a “smarter” grid to deliver and manage electricity.
Transitioning to a smart grid means applying advanced technology to our existing electric system, making the system more reliable and efficient while giving you more control over your usage.
The Next Innovation
The first step in transforming the grid is installing new electric meters on Alameda’s homes and businesses. These new “smart” meters will help you control, reduce and, most importantly, understand your use of electricity.
Over time, these new meters and related smart grid technology will enable you to control your major appliances and choose from various pricing options.
The future of energy begins with a new meter—and AMP is piloting these new meters to approximately 900 homes and businesses across the island.
