Florida, North America —

Florida Power & Light selects Silver Spring Networks for North America’s largest networked street light deployment.

SELC was been selected by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) for North America’s largest networked street light deployment under contract.

SELC integrated Silver Spring’s wireless IPv6 mesh networking technology and Silver Spring’s used their existing AMI network and management and control software to connect the street lights.

FPL expects the remote monitoring and control capabilities of the system to significantly improve street light restoration response times and enhance the quality of service to its street light customers.

This is an important step in an ongoing effort to modernize and network FPL’s power delivery system, including the nearly 500,000 street lights FPL maintains throughout the company’s 35-county service area.

“Building this smart grid initiative, FPL is once again demonstrating its leadership in leveraging the most advanced technology ” said Pat Gayer, CEO, SELC. “We are proud to support FPL in its ongoing efforts to deliver even more benefits to its customers.”
