Landis+Gyr to supply 700K e-meters to U.S. utility company CPS

Toshiba invested Landis+Gyr to supply 700,000 E-350 FOCUS advanced meters to U.S. utility company CPS energy, with shipments beginning early in 2014.

“As a partner on a number of initiatives, including a large scale demand response project, Landis+Gyr is helping CPS Energy create a more reliable grid and decrease load at times of peak demand,” said CPS Energy President and CEO Doyle Beneby. “By bringing jobs and supporting education, Landis+Gyr is also growing economic development in and around San Antonio.”

Landis+Gyr is also 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 megawatts of peak demand, according to Landis+Gyr.

“CPS Energy is taking a leading role in promoting energy management and efficiency, and Landis+Gyr is pleased to have an active part in supporting these initiatives,” said Richard Mora, CEO of Landis+Gyr North America. “The benefits derived from advanced metering, grid automation and advanced load management are proven to pay off in reliability, operational efficiency and energy savings.”
