Landis+Gyr to supply CPS Energy with 700,000 advanced meters

Landis+Gyr formed an agreement with CPS Energy to supply advanced residential electric meters for the utility’s grid modernization effort, a partnership that also supports the utility’s New Energy Economy initiative to boost San Antonio’s clean technology sector.

Landis+Gyr will provide 700,000 E-350 FOCUS advanced meters with shipments beginning early in 2014. The meter upgrade project is anticipated to take four years. As part of the agreement, Landis+Gyr will partner with CPS Energy by supporting economic development including job creation and support for an innovation center in San Antonio and local education scholarships.

In addition to metering technology, Landis+Gyr is operating a direct load control program at CPS Energy. The utility is using Virtual Peak Plant software and load control devices from Landis+Gyr to verify and measure energy savings from conservation events. The program has the potential to provide a verifiable reduction of 250 MW of peak demand.

CPS Energy provides service to about 741,000 electric and 331,000 natural gas customers in the Greater San Antonio area.
