Sault Smart Grid
PUC Distribution Inc.
This project deploys a community-scale smart grid in Sault Ste. Marie, covering 100% of the PUC service area. By integrating a number of complimentary smart grid technologies, including distributed automation, Voltage/VAR management, and the enhancement of existing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), PUC will modernize the distribution infrastructure and improve reliability, efficiency and resiliency of the grid.
The project will provide an enabling platform for renewable energy and will expand customer opportunities to take advantage of enhanced energy services.
The Sault Smart Grid will reduce electricity costs to customers, increase reliability and power quality. This project will ensure the grid is positioned to accommodate new Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and provide community economic development.
