Aclara has announced a contract with Nebraska's Twin Valleys Public Power District to deploy its TWACS and Demand Response Management System technologies. The solution will provide a single, fully integrated platform for demand response, advanced metering and data collection, and power system management.
This is the second public power district to commit to Aclara’s DRMS since the solution was launched earlier this year. Just three weeks ago, Cuming County Public Power District (CCPPD), also in Nebraska, announced plans to roll out the Aclara DRMS. The Aclara DRMS serves municipal, cooperative and investor-owned utilities.
TVPPD is replacing an outdated, legacy load control system with Aclara’s DRMS, unleashing a host of new AMI network-based capabilities. With a reliable, scalable and flexible AMI network in place, the District will support future smart grid applications, and better initiate, manage and terminate load control events through a unified dashboard.
The Aclara DRMS provides utilities with a one-stop shop for complete demand response management, allowing utilities to create, test, execute and fine-tune load management programs through a variety of approaches and device types. The solution unifies all relevant internal and external data, enabling operators to improve decision making and gain insight through advanced analytics and forecasting.
