BPA has joined 11 utilities, a major university and five technical firms across five states in the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project (PNWSGDP). This project, the largest in the nation, involves $89 million in participant funds and the same amount in matching Department of Energy (DOE) funds through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA). Directed by the Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle), Pacific Northwest Division in Richland, Wash., the project involves more than 60,000 metered customers. BPA is contributing $10 million to the five-year project, which was matched with an additional $10 million from DOE.
