landis gyr elp

Landis+Gyr announced that Baldwin EMC, the largest electric cooperative in Alabama, has begun installing an advanced load management system to support four residential demand response programs.

Landis+Gyr's advanced load management system is part of the Gridstream Customer Intelligence solution and delivers two-way, verifiable communication with load control switches and thermostats.

Additionally, the system supports a home energy management system with mobile application for members to manage equipment and participation in demand response events. Baldwin EMC is planning to deploy 20,000 devices with the ability to manage 19 MW of load.

As part of the project, Landis+Gyr completed integration of its load management operating system, Power Center, with NISC's Customer Information System. The integration synchronizes program enrollment and management of Baldwin EMC's four demand response programs, while automating device installations and service calls.

Landis+Gyr's advanced load management technology features intelligent switches with built-in metrology that confirm the amount of load shed at each appliance. This capability allows more flexibility for consumers during conservation events while still maintaining load shedding goals.

Baldwin EMC is a member-owned cooperative supplying electric service to more than 70,000 meters throughout Baldwin County and southern Monroe County in southwestern Alabama. Baldwin is the largest electric cooperative in the state of Alabama and one of the fastest-growing electric cooperatives in the nation.
