GE Energy (GE) Hooks Colorado Springs Utilities Up With Smart Grid Technologies

GE Energy just announced that it has installed smart grid technologies for Colorado Springs Utilities to help them better manage power flow and customer communication in their service area. Here’s more on the announcement, from Trading Markets:

The newly installed GE PowerOn Outage Management System (OMS) helps CSU respond more quickly to power outages, while providing consumers with updated restoration-time estimates when outages do occur.

GE said that it is currently enhancing the system with PowerOn Mobile, which will put more real-time information and communications capabilities in the hands of crews in the field.

Also, a future project phase will integrate the OMS with CSU’s new smart meters and automated metering infrastructure, which will help detect outages sooner and restore service faster.

Financial details were not available.
