In this paper, we suggested how the Internet of Things (IoT) technology could be applied to an internet platform that is used for managing the customer's power grid efficiently. For an internet platform with efficient management, analysis is done by several sections; communication method, and its protocol, and also security element. From this analysis, with currently used sensors, we have presented a development method for the sensor to server data reliable communication solution and data management server with a security solution. Moreover, this paper suggests a communication module that could be used for a power grid management platform, protocol and security algorithm and also a way to build a server for managing those systems and modules.
