More funding for smart grid deployments


Redwood City, CA, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — August 21, 2008 – Trilliant, one of the players in the smart metering and smart grids industry, has raised additional capital in the form of equity investment that will be used to expand its service offering both in the U.S. and globally.

Formed in 2004, Trilliant recently passed the 750,000 mark for delivered devices. Together with its partners Capgemini, GE and Motorola, it is on track to deliver 1.3 million meters to Hydro One in Canada, in what will be one of the larger smart meter deployments. A few years ago the company acquired automatic meter vendor Nertec, and merged with OZZ Energy Services in 2007.  

Trilliant uses a ZigBee wireless network as its energy management solution.
