American Electric Power (AEP) is evaluating AMS for deployment initially within their largest urban areas and has performed a detail analysis for Columbus, Ohio.  Urban areas are of initial interest for a variety of reasons, the chief one being the most obvious: Is it more cost effective to deploy a fixed network system (AMS) in more densely populated areas on a per-customer basis?

AEP is one of the largest electric utilities in the United States, delivering electricity to more than 5 million customers in 11 states. AEP ranks among the nation’s largest generators of electricity, owning nearly 36,000 megawatts of generating capacity in the U.S.
