Site Controls Customers Respond to Critical Energy Crisis Stemming From California Wildfires
Site Controls, LLC, a premium provider of enterprise-based energy management, operational intelligence, and grid efficiency solutions released information today pertaining to last Wednesday's grid emergency resulting from the fires in Southern California.
Because the fires caused the failure of a major electric transmission line into San Diego, California issued an urgent call Wednesday for emergency energy conservation. Site Controls, working collaboratively with its customers responded and, almost immediately, Site Controls was materially reducing demand for electricity in the affected areas. Leveraging its web-based distributed control systems in 66 participating locations, Site Controls and its customers eliminated over three megawatt-hours of electrical demand from the California grid.
Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced it has been selected by the City of Ponca City, Okla., to implement an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and energy-efficiency program that will help the city improve its utility services to residents while reducing its energy and operating spend, and impact on the environment.
