It’s no wonder that smart meter rollouts have skyrocketed with supporting business case findings such as ComEd customers saving potentially $2.8 billion on their electric bills over the 20-year life of the smart meters.  Largely due to the aggressive U.S. effort to modernize its electric grid pros and cons (for example PG&E will now offer ‘opt out option’) for smart meters are still aggressively being debated; nonetheless the number of smart meters installed in the U.S. has ballooned over the past several years – with just over fifty utilities deploying the bulk of the investment. Zpryme analyzed data from the EIA in an effort to not only breakdown smart meter deployments by utility but also to zero in on the drivers that will bridge the U.S. energy divide.
