Washington-based Snohomish County Public Utility District (PUD) has chosen Silver Spring Networks Inc. for the initial phase of a distribution automation (DA) project.

Leveraging Silver Spring's IPv6 networking platform and distribution automation solution, the Snohomish PUD program aims to improve the reliability, efficiency and resiliency of its distribution grid.

"Silver Spring's standards-based networking platform allows us to not only connect, monitor and control DA equipment in the field today, but to also create the long-term foundation for deployment of additional smart grid solutions in the future,” comments Chris Heimgartner, assistant general manager of distribution and engineering services at the utility.
