Silicon Valley Power (SVP), the municipal electric utility in Santa Clara, Calif., says it is deploying the PI System from OSIsoft as a part of its smart grid initiative.

OSIsoft's data management infrastructure will assist the utility's distribution operations, engineering and planning business units by collecting metering data and integrating and correlating it with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and operational data.

"With the PI System as our data infrastructure, we now have the ability to be more proactive and innovative as an electric utility," says Dennis P. Steffani, senior control/communications engineer for SVP. "Adopting OSIsoft's technology, on an enterprise scale, will give us the confidence to not only ensure the reliability and safety of our services, but also respond quickly to the information needs of everyday decision-making."
