Project Summary:

The City of Leesburg’s (Leesburg) Smart Grid Investment Grant project involves a city-wide deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), new customer systems, and expansion of distribution automation capabilities. Leesburg is providing consumer education to help customers use the new devices and usage information to their full potential. The project also automates and increases the efficiency of portions of the electric distribution system through the deployment of automated voltage capacitors and regulators, fault indicators, and automated reclosers. These devices improve power quality, reduce line losses, and reduce the duration and number of customers affected by power outages.

Equipment:

- 23,000 Smart Meters
- AMI Communication Systems
--- Meter Communications Network
--- Backhaul Communications
- Meter Data Management System
- Home Area Networks
- Customer Web Portal Access for All Customers
- 750 In-Home Displays/Energy Management Systems
- 350 Programmable Communicating Thermostats
- 350 Direct Load Control Devices
- Distribution Automation Equipment for 25 of 25 Circuits
--- Distribution Automation Communications Network
--- SCADA Communications Network
--- Automated Distribution Circuit Switches
--- Automated Capacitors
--- Automated Regulators
--- Equipment Health Sensors
--- Circuit Monitors/Indicators
- 8 Distributed Energy Resources Interfaces

Targeted Benefits:

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