The City of Holly Springs, Miss., has contracted GE to provide a subscription-based solutions as a service (SaaS) package to help modernize the city's utility grid.

Under the terms of the 10-year agreement, GE says it will supply Holly Springs with a variety of advanced electric meter services and equipment, including its I210+c single-phase and KV2c polyphase meters. In addition, GE will provide meter-monitoring services, equipping the city with accurate and up-to-date data on its utility network. This information also will be accessible to customers through GE's Grid IQ Solution Landing Portal, which displays historical metering and billing data and provides accessible residential customer connect/disconnect services, GE adds.

"The improved reliability and efficiency that come along with a modernized grid are prime reasons why cities look to upgrade their utility infrastructure," comments CE’s Todd Jackson. "By equipping Holly Springs with our SaaS grid modernization technology, we have helped the city to establish an advanced utility network capable of meeting 21st-century energy challenges."
