Media Advisory - Hydro One



    TORONTO, June 16 /CNW/ - With a predominantly rural service territory,
twice the size of Texas, and a goal to have a smart meter in 1.3M homes and
small businesses by 2010, Hydro One was faced with the significant challenge
to deploy this new technology and the build of a ubiquitous communications
network to support it. Realizing it could leverage this network for multiple
customer and business applications, Hydro One assembled its Smart Meter team
comprised of Trilliant, Motorola, Capgemini, and General Electric (GE) to
develop its vision for its award-winning, end-to-end solution.
    Media are invited to attend a briefing by the project team in conjunction
with the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Convention in Toronto.
