Barbados Light & Power has selected Landis+Gyr for a comprehensive smart grid technology project that includes the company’s Gridstream AMI solution and meter data management solutions.
Barbados Light & Power is installing E350 FOCUS AX-SD and E650 S4x polyphase advanced meters, and plans to add distribution automation devices, all operating on Landis+Gyr’s RF network. The utility’s grid management priorities include improved outage response, line-loss reductions and solar integration from solar farms and rooftop installations.
The Gridstream AMI solution connects utilities with data from critical points across the distribution system, and interfaces with existing utility systems and applications to more effectively manage billing, operations, engineering and customer service. The network enables two-way communications with meters, sensors and switches to provide interval load and voltage data, and enable net metering, outage management and remote service connection capabilities.
