Project Summary:

The Talquin Electric Cooperative’s (TEC) SmartGrid Program involves the installation of advanced metering, communications infrastructure, distribution automation equipment, load control devices, and other customer systems. The project implements two-way communications to: (1) enable customers to view their energy consumption at their convenience through customer systems and Web portals, (2) provide time-based rate programs to customers, (3) provide information and tools to improve outage management, and (4) reduce operations and maintenance costs. The project also installs automated distribution grid equipment expected to: (1) enhance the reliability and quality of electric delivery, and (2) reduce operations and maintenance costs.

Equipment:

- 56,000 Smart Meters
- AMI Communication Systems
--- Meter Communications Network
--- Backhaul Communications
- Customer Web Portal for 56,000 Customers
- 1,000 Programmable Communicating Thermostats
- Distribution Automation Equipment for 46 out of 86 Circuits
--- SCADA Communications Network
--- Automated Distribution Circuit Switches
--- Automated Capacitors

Targeted Benefits:

- Reduced Meter Reading Costs
- Reduced Operating and Maintenance Costs
- Increased Electric Service Reliability
- Reduced Electricity Costs for Customers
- Reduced Costs from Distribution Line Losses, Equipment Failures, and Theft
- Deferred Investment in Distribution Capacity Expansion
- Reduced Truck Fleet Fuel Usage
- Reduced Greenhouse Gas and Criteria Pollutant Emissions
