GE's Digital Energy business is implementing its advanced Grid IQ solutions-as-a-service grid-modernization technology for the city of Skiatook, Okla.

GE says it will provide grid monitoring, outage detection, asset management and Industrial Internet technology to the city's electric and water utilities.

According to GE, the addition of the technology will enable Skiatook to respond to changing energy dynamics via a cohesive network, modern meters and advanced metering infrastructure. The system provided by GE can be accessed by a utility company for a monthly subscription fee.

The grid-modernization solution will allow for faster deployment of electric and water meters and reduce excess costs associated with the management of the utility grid, GE adds.
