Kentucky's Glasgow Electric Plant Board (Glasgow EPB) has selected Elster's EnergyAxis Smart Grid solution to deliver advanced time-of-use billing capabilities to its customers.
By deploying the EnergyAxis solution across its infrastructure, Glasgow EPB expects improved operational efficiencies and anticipates empowering its customers to better manage energy usage and lower energy costs.
Glasgow EPB is one of the 155 Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) power distributors, and an active member of the Tennessee Valley Public Power Association (TVPPA). TVPPA represents utilities who receive power from the TVA, a federally owned corporation providing electricity for nine million people across southeastern states. As part of its decades long work toward its vision of Infotricity, Glasgow EPB will install more than 7,500 Elster Smart Meters before July 2015.
Glasgow EPB is the latest TVA power distributor to partner with Elster as part of the TVA's move toward TOU rates. Using Elster EnergyAxis, Glasgow EPB is rolling out advanced metering and communications technologies to provide these new rate options, giving the utility's consumers greater control of their energy use and costs.
