What is Smart Grid?

Opelika Power Services is pleased to announce the innovation of “Smart Grid.” This technology upgrade allows OPS to provide you with even better, more efficient power services.  The only change that you will see is that our reliability will only get better.  We are excited to provide the City of Opelika with these technology advancements. 

Smart Grid reads your power usage through fiber which will allow us to get real time data. If  there is a power outage in an area it is detected through the Smart Grid system. Opelika Power Services then uses Automated Switching to self-heal the area’s downed electrical sub-station, we will re-route power to areas from a different sub-station. Our Outage Management System will allow us to know when and where an outage occurs as soon as it happens and how wide spread it is.

What can Smart Grid do for me?

+ Smart Grid can give you, the customer, data on how much power you’re actually using in real time. Much like your water meter outside, but viewable from any device!

+ Smart Grid gives the customer the ability to track and monitor the monthly usage.y device!

+ Smart Grid lets us know if there is a power outage. So we can get there as soon as possible. This helps us not have to wait on people to call us.
