BUFORD, Ga., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OMNIMETRIX, LLC, an Acorn Energy, Inc., (NASDAQ:ACFN) company, announced today that it has established a relationship with a leading regional grocery chain. In conjunction with Nixon Power Services (the world's largest Kohler generator distributor headquartered in Nashville, TN), OMNIMETRIX will supply one of the largest regional supermarkets in the US with backup power supply monitoring capabilities for their generators.
OMNIMETRIX being chosen as the supplier for backup power monitoring technology by Nixon and one of the most distinctive upscale food & pharmacy chains that focused on customer service is a clear indication of its importance in the market. "Recent utility grid failures on the east coast of the US emphasizes the need for reliable back up power for a myriad of facilities. Sustained loss of power accompanied by failed back up power would pose a risk to shoppers and significant financial loss for the stores that OMNIMETRIX will be monitoring," said Deena Redding, President of OMNIMETRIX, LLC.
