The Auburn Electric Utility provides electricity to our residential and business community via SmartGRID—a real-time communications network that connects the transmission, distribution and customer metering functions to a centralized management system. In addition to helping us maintain high levels of customer service, SmartGRID provides real-time automated meter reading and outage reporting and many useful energy conservation tools. And, together, all of this is giving residents and businesses one of the lowest electric rates in Indiana.

As a centralized management system connecting the transmission, distribution and customer metering functions of power delivery, the SmartGRID offers many benefits:

  • Real-time automated meter reading
  • Real-time outage reporting
  • Energy conservation tools
  • Efficient and constant operation of power delivery
  • Ability to anticipate and proactively respond to system disturbances
  • Compatibility with various types of generation and storage options
  • Resilient operation protection against threat of attack and natural disaster

This website has been designed to promote the importance of budget notices and the role that they play in the daily lives of Indiana taxpayers.
