Tipmont has selected Landis+Gyr's Revelo sensing meter to better manage its grid and improve member engagement as part of its grid modernization strategy.
The agreement with Landis+Gyr (SIX: LAND) includes the installation of the Gridstream® RF Mesh IP network to cover more than 30,000 Revelo advanced meters being deployed across its service territory, along with software hosting and project support.
"We selected a smart grid technology capable of providing long-term energy management benefits for our members," said Ron Holcomb, Tipmont President & CEO. "Being able to offer load disaggregation technology and other energy management applications to our membership is a key part of our strategy."
Landis+Gyr's Revelo platform delivers highly granular data from streaming current waveforms. Combined with machine learning, this capability enables real-time load disaggregation, anomaly detection on both sides of the meter, and autonomous decision making at the grid edge to improve response and efficiency.
"Revelo was designed to improve both consumer engagement and situational awareness for utilities to help balance loads and detect system anomalies and failing equipment much faster than relying on historical meter data," said David Chris, Senior Director of Distribution Sales for Landis+Gyr. "For electric cooperatives, these features make it easier to assist members with energy audits, high bill complaints and personal energy management, while improving response to distribution grid issues and load management."
