From the Glendale News-Press & Burbank Leader:

CITY HALL — The Department of Energy today announced that the cities of Glendale and Burbank  will each receive $20 million to help pay the installation of smart meters that track real-time water and electricity usage.

Glendale and Burbank were the only cities in Los Angeles County to receive a share of the $3.4 billion in stimulus funding that President Obama said Tuesday would support similar smart grid and other energy efficiency programs nationwide.

The federal windfall would make up a large portion of the estimated $28 million cost of the electric component of Glendale Water & Power’s plan, which is estimated at about $35 million for the installation of both electric and water meters, officials said.
