New technologies for computerized metering and data collection in the electrical power grid promise to create a more efficient, cost-effective, and adaptable smart grid. However, naive implementations of smart grid data collection could jeopardize the privacy of consumers, and concerns about privacy are a significant obstacle to the rollout of smart grid technology. Our work proposes a design for a smart metering system that will allow utilities to use the collected data effectively while preserving the privacy of individual consumers.
