New York PSC Issues Smart Grid Policy Statement Recommending Utilities Consider Using Carrier Networks
Late last week the New York Public Service Commission issued a policy statement that recommends (among other things) that utilities consider using carrier networks for smart grid. Specifically, the PSC stated that “[w]e expect that smart grid technologies will utilize a hybrid of both public and private networks. We urge the electric utilities and communication providers to work together to ensure the appropriate use of commercial facilities, and to limit utility capital investments in dedicated communications infrastructure to those functions where it is appropriate.”
