Los Angeles Department of Water and Power expands contract with Itron

Sponsored by

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) awarded the advanced time-of-use and net time-of-use electric metering contract to Itron.

LADWP will use Itron’s cellular solution to supply advanced time-of-use and net time-of-use residential, commercial and industrial electric metering to LADWP’s customers. The solution will help LADWP improve customer service, expand renewable energy initiatives and help the municipal utility meet increasing demands from applications for solar net metered residential, commercial and industrial customers in the city of Los Angeles.

LADWP will use Itron’s cellular solution to support its Feed-in Tariff (FiT) program. Through the FiT program, LADWP purchases energy from eligible renewable energy projects from 30 kW up to 3 MW in capacity within its service territory.

The utility will also deploy this metering solution for customers participating in time-of-use rates, including, but not limited to, customers with electric vehicle charging stations, to help forecast and balance load. The data from these advanced meters will also be used for energy conservation, engineering analysis and load forecasting to increase operational efficiency.

The cellular advanced metering solution will also be used by LADWP for its customers located in areas with high outage sensitivity and critical need for real-time power quality monitoring and communication. The solution, including about 40,000 additional cellular advanced meters and data collection software, will be installed over three years.
