Project Summary:

The City of Tallahassee’s Automated Demand Response project involves the deployment of customer systems, load control programs, and distribution automation equipment. The City of Tallahassee is installing customer systems and programs to provide consumers with information, choices, and technologies to better manage their electricity costs while reducing distribution system peak demand and correlated pollution and cost impacts. Distribution projects include the deployment of a communications network, automated devices, and the upgrade of the distribution management system (DMS), which enables interoperability with existing and new devices. The City of Tallahassee expects distribution automation to improve the reliability of electric service and to enhance monitoring and optimizing distribution system conditions when demand response events are initiated.
