Understanding Smart Grid

When city leaders began looking at fiber for Smart Grid, they quickly recognized the advantages that this network would provide to OPS and our customers.  This investment in our network will modernize the electric grid.  This is a powerful innovation that will allow OPS to provide better reliability and greater efficiency to our customers.

Smart Grid is a communications infrastructure that will detect outages and errors, allowing OPS to have the fastest possible response time to restore your service.

Smart Grid will enable OPS to view and manage grid performance, diagnose and resolve problems, as well as automate many operational processes resulting in improved customer service.

Smart Grid can create a self-healing grid and reduce your outage time.

Smart Grid will allow customers to receive real time data, allowing them to monitor and manage their home energy usage and lower monthly bills.

Our number one goal is to keep your lights on!
