Florida Power & Light Co. has received recognition for its Automated Fault Mapping Prediction System, with an Award of Excellence from the International Smart Grid Action Network.
FPL's project focused on leveraging smart grid data integration to direct crews to the location of a power line problem faster, resulting in fewer customers affected by outages.
"We're honored that our work to build a stronger and smarter energy grid for Florida is being recognized," said Eric Silagy, president and CEO for FPL. "Innovative projects like this help us deliver reliable service to our customers year-round. Leveraging advanced solutions such as the Automated Fault Mapping Prediction System, gives us unprecedented visibility across the grid so we can more quickly detect and prevent many issues before they become problems for our customers."
