Redwood City, CA, Feb. 27, 2008 — Trilliant Inc. announced that it has been selected by PowerStream, an electricity distribution company in Ontario, as its exclusive agent to provide AMI smart suite-metering equipment, supplies and services for residential, commercial and industrial (C&I) use.
Suite metering involves measuring the energy use of individual suites in multi-occupant buildings, including condos. This is designed to allow building tenants to be accountable for their own utility use and costs.
About 90 percent of Ontario’s stock of rental multi-residential apartments is currently bulk-metered. This sector currently represents about five percent of Ontario’s electricity consumption. A report issued by the Federation of Rental-Housing Providers of Ontario calculates that if buildings were to be individually metered, it would reduce overall provincial consumption by about one percent.
Trilliant will provide PowerStream with sales and marketing support, engineering design services, a C&I metering and AMI network, installation and commissioning, data management and operations support, and process expertise.
