REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Sept. 25, 2014 — Silver Spring Networks, Inc. SSNI, -1.60% today announced that it has been selected for an advanced, multi-application smart grid deployment for City Utilities of Springfield, a community-owned utility delivering electricity, natural gas and water services to more than 106,000 customers in southwest Missouri.
