Wake Forest, N.C., July 22, 2009 – PowerSecure International announced its smart grid enabled Interactive Distributed Generation systems were deployed 3,995 times to generate load management efficiencies on behalf of utilities and their customers during the first half of 2009.
This result is up 21 percent over the first half of 2008, according to the company. These smart grid systems help utilities reduce the cost of electricity during peak power periods, protect against power losses and interruptions, and improve grid efficiency.
The company’s Interactive Distributed Generation (IDG) systems are engineered with the company’s proprietary NexGear technology, enabling them to be controlled continuously by a smart grid monitoring center.
This monitoring center proactively forecasts high cost peak electricity demand, and deploys more efficient IDG power at optimal times for optimal durations, providing bottom-line benefits by reducing electricity costs.
