Indiana electricity utility cooperative Tipmont has selected Landis+Gyr’s Revelo sensing meter to manage its grid and improve member engagement as part of its grid modernisation.
The agreement includes the installation of the Gridstream RF mesh IP network to cover more than 30,000 Revelo 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 CEO. “Being able to offer load disaggregation technology and other energy management applications to our membership is a key part of our strategy.”
The 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 at 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.”
Swiss firm Landis+Gyr (www.landisgyr.com) is a provider of integrated energy management. It measures and analyses energy use to generate analytics for smart grid and infrastructure management, enabling utilities and consumers to reduce energy consumption. With sales of $1.7bn in 2022, Landis+Gyr employs around 7800 people across five continents.
Founded in 1939, Tipmont (tipmont.com) is a rural electric membership corporation that provides an electric service to over 29,000 meters in eight Indiana counties surrounding Lafayette and Crawfordsville. In 2019, Tipmont acquired Wintek, a Lafayette technology company. Together, Tipmont and Wintek offer in-home fibre internet services and customised business technology.
