TOU pilot project goes smoothly


Tantalus Systems Corp. has completed the installation of their pilot advanced metering deployment for the City of Anaheim Public Utilities Department. The pilot is part of Anaheim’s long term plan to deliver time-of-use (TOU) and dynamic pricing information to their 110,000 electric meters. With the Tantalus Utility Network (TUNetT) installed, Anaheim will now begin the rigorous, 6-month testing phase of the pilot.

TUNet is a two-way, real-time wireless communications network, designed to move large amounts of data at high speed. As an application neutral network, TUNet provides a communications foundation that can support additional applications as the need arises, and allows utilities to realise maximum value from their distribution networks. TUNet is also able to support outage reporting, power quality monitoring and other applications. /
