Aclara DRMS Brings Comprehensive Load Control To Cuming County Public Power District

ST. LOUIS, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aclara®, a leader in Intelligent Infrastructure technologies for utilities and part of the Utility Solutions Group of ESCO Technologies Inc. (NYSE:ESE), today announced a contract with Nebraska's Cuming County Public Power District (CCPPD) to deploy the Aclara Demand Response Management System (powered by Calico). CCPPD, a long-time Aclara customer, has agreed to purchase the solution to expand the load-control capabilities of its existing TWACS network infrastructure.

"We are pleased to have found a solution that will allow us to better forecast, reduce, and manage load while leveraging our existing investments," said Elwood Moore, general manager, CCPPD. "The Aclara DRMS is the fastest, simplest, most cost-effective choice for improved load control today – one that will help us to manage costs for our members, reduce peak loads, and respond more effectively to load reduction requests from our wholesale power supplier."

This CCPPD commitment comes less than 12 weeks after Aclara and Calico announced a strategic partnership to provide an integrated set of advanced load control, analytics and demand response (DR) solutions to municipals, cooperative utilities, wholesale power cooperatives, and IOU customers.

"We envisioned a powerful solution for demand-side management, analytics, and forecasting capabilities that met electric-utility requirements for maximum effectiveness in handling demand-response events. We see this roll-out as the first of many that confirms this vision," said Brad Kitterman, president, Aclara.

The Aclara DRMS will enable CCPPD to dramatically improve upon its traditional load-control model with flexible demand-response capabilities and powerful analytics through a unified command-and-control center. With DRMS, CCPPD will be able to gain control of irrigation loads, automatically initiate and terminate events in response to signals from its wholesale power provider, maintain load levels based on a pre-defined threshold, and much more.
