FREMONT, CA: Leading distribution transformer monitoring solutions provider, Grid 20/20 has announced the release of its pioneering Remote Grid Monitoring capability within the US, Ontario Canada, and abroad as COVID-19 continues to spread. "The COVID-19 pandemic has created an immediate need for remote, perpetual electricity grid monitoring," said Alan Snook, President of GRID20/20. "Our ability to provide safe, continuous home-bound grid oversight, combined with critical Automated Alerts and pinpointed Outage Notifications is of paramount value given this extraordinary period," said Snook.
The company’s Advanced Transformer Infrastructure (ATI) solution leverages fast installation enabled patented intra-grid sensors, encrypted intra-grid data security, and global remote data access capability. The platform allows operators to visualize and monitor their ongoing intra-grid conditions, identify existing problems to remediate proactively, and accelerate power restoration via immediate power outage notifications from home. This embraces self-isolation and social distancing to ensure the utility workforce remains healthy during this unprecedented period.
“As many people have been required to work in isolation, creating a new home-bound workforce that is striving to serve needs and support our economy, uninterrupted electricity service is imperative. By providing operators with the ability to use our “Hands-Free” perpetual grid monitoring capability, we are facilitating important grid Reliability during this period of workforce isolation”, added Snook.
Currently, the company maintains an available inventory of its patented OptaNODE® intra-grid sensors to provide immediate grid monitoring support. In addition, the company's ISO 9001 manufacturer is classified as “essential”, thereby readying GRID20/20 to deliver substantial ongoing rollout support to grid operators. Grid 20/20 was featured as one of the Top 10 Smart Grid Solution Providers by Utilities Tech Outlook magazine for 2019.
As vital stimulus funding avenues continue to emerge, operators will have immediate access to capital for adopting this essential Remote, Perpetual Grid Monitoring Solution. “The new normal has arrived”, said Snook. “Our game-changing grid monitoring solution will help to get us through this COVID-19 pandemic, and will serve the evolving needs of operators for decades.”
