Smart Grid

The “Smart Grid” is a technology-enabled electrical grid that provides up-to-date information that will improve efficiency, reliability and sustainability of electricity services. Obvius manufactures two-way communication devices that gather data from meters and sensors in the field and distributes the information between network operation centers and facilities. A common smart grid application is demand response. Up-to-date information allows operators to make informed decisions on when to curtail or shift loads in order to avoid peak charges.

Demand Response Application Note

Utility rate structures typically provide residential, commercial and industrial customers with fixed rates for energy regardless of the generating cost.
