CPS Energy, the U.S.' largest gas and electric combined municipal utility, and Silver Spring Networks, a developer of smart energy networks, have partnered to support San Antonio's smart grid development.

Through this partnership, Silver Spring Networks will deploy a smart grid network to support the utility's 740,000 electric and 340,000 natural gas customers in the Greater San Antonio area. In addition to advanced metering, CPS Energy will also leverage Silver Spring's standards-based smart grid networking platform to roll out a distribution automation initiative across the service territory and extend availability of CPS Energy’s demand reduction programs.

Silver Spring Networks will also open an office in San Antonio to employ product testing and engineering personnel, professional technical consultants, technical operations teams and a variety of permanent staff. This office will work to develop strategic partnerships with other local companies.

“The energy industry is undergoing a major transformation, driven in part by technological advancements and customer expectations for more information,” says CPS Energy President and CEO Doyle Beneby. “Our CPS Energy team is committed to bringing together a broad group of innovators who can help our community prepare for the future. Silver Spring’s vision and world-class technology are an exciting addition to the New Energy Economy hub that is developing in San Antonio.”
