Southern California Edison (SCE) is planning a demonstration project, scheduled to launch on June 30, 2013, that will include electric-distribution infrastructure, substations, residential homes, cyber security networks, battery energy storage systems, and EV charging stations at the University of California, Irvine.

Doug Kim, Southern California Edison’s director of Advanced Technology, says, “We’re moving the smart grid discussion from engineering and concepts on the drawing boards to our customers. Consumers who have been hearing about a smarter electric grid will now experience it firsthand. With increased insight, more options, and greater control over their energy usage, consumers in this demonstration project will help us engineer a better energy future.”
