Nova Scotia Power deploys Schneider Electric smart grid solution

Nova Scotia Power chose Schneider Electric to implement an advanced distribution management system based outage management system as an integrated smart grid solution to improve operational efficiencies and outage management response and restoration.

Currently in the implementation phase, the project will enable Nova Scotia Power to meet the challenges of increasing consumer demands for sustainable, reliable energy as well as positioning the utility for future advanced smart grid operations.

The new solution uses the utility's existing investment in Schneider Electric's GIS technology, offering efficient network data and model management and embedded OMS and DMS technologies.

Using integrated voice response, work order management and crew dispatch capabilities, Nova Scotia Power will be able to efficiently monitor, analyze and manage its network of nearly 500,000 customers for more rapid response to power outages.

Schneider Electric's ADMS is deployed in more than 26 countries serving more than 68 million utility customers.
