Energy inView Program Overview
In spring 2017, AMP is launching Energy inView, an exciting new program that’s all about providing better service to our residential and commercial customers.
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.
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 understand your use of electricity. The future of energy begins with a new meter – and AMP expects to complete meter installations throughout the island by December 2017.
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.
