GridPoint Gets Into Solar Integration With SMUD, ComEd

By Jeff St. John on Greentech, November 3 2009

Smart grid software startup GridPoint said Wednesday that it is helping the Sacramento Municipal Utility District with a pressing problem – managing power from its customers' rooftop solar panels.

The Arlington, Va.-based company has landed a contract to help the Sacramento, Calif.-based municipal utility manage renewable power integration, energy storage and home energy management systems.

SMUD last week won $127.5 million from the Department of Energy to carry out the project, which also includes deploying 600,000 smart meters in its service territory. It's one of 100 projects that received a piece of the $3.4 billion in DOE smart grid stimulus grants.
