Trilliant provides fully automated, two-way wireless network solutions and software for smart grid applications. The company’s smart grid communications solutions enable utilities to create a more efficient and robust operational infrastructure to:
- Read meters on demand with five minute or less intervals;
- Improve cash flow;
- Improve customer service;
- Decrease issue resolution time;
- Verify outages and restoration in real time;
- Monitor substation equipment;
- Perform on/off cycle reads;
- Conduct remote connect/disconnect;
- Significantly reduce/eliminate energy theft through tamper detection; and
- Realize accounting/billing improvements.
Trilliant solutions also enable the introduction of services and programs such as:
- Dynamic demand response; and
- Time-of-use (TOU), critical peak pricing (CPP) and other special tariffs and related metering.
Solid Customer Base
Trilliant has secured contracts for more than three million meters to be supported by its network solutions and services, encompassing both C&I and residential applications. The company has delivered products and services to more than 200 utility customers, including Duke Energy, E.ON US (Louisville Gas & Electric), Hydro One, Hydro Quebec, Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd., Milton Hydro, Northeast Utilities, PowerStream, Public Service Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, Toronto Hydro Electric System Ltd., and Union Gas, among others.
Trilliant Incorporated provides wireless network solutions and software for advanced metering, demand response, smart grid and submetering. With more than 20 years’ experience solving utility meter communications needs, the company empowers flexibility and choice through the adoption and integration of open standards-based technologies.
Trilliant SecureMesh™ AMI solutions enable utilities to introduce services and programs such as time-of-use (TOU) metering, CIS initiated real-time meter reads and customer disconnect/ reconnect. These programs are transforming the traditional customer-utility relationship through interval-based consumption data and two-way messaging, resulting in reduced operational costs and improved reliability.
Many utilities are initiating smart metering and AMI programs with a primary goal of ad dressing critical peak demand challenges using TOU pricing, critical peak pricing and demand response programs. Trilliant is the first AMI supplier to provide an open standards-based platform for AMI-integrated demand response (i.e., load control) incorporating smart thermostats – and thus air conditioning equipment – and other loads such as pool pumps and water heaters. The Trilliant Demand Response solution also supports in-premise (“in-home”) displays that offer consumers real-time information on energy usage and utility-initiated messages.
By leveraging Smart Grid solutions from Trilliant, utilities can realize dramatic improvements in system performance and cost. System operational challenges such as outage detection and restoration verification are supported through a combination of network-based intelligence and operations center applications. Trilliant’s Smart Grid solutions enable operations to more effectively identify faults and rapidly restore service on the basis of real-time readings of on-premise conditions. These offerings may also be integrated with extended enterprise systems supporting the mobile field force. Smart Grid solutions from Trilliant provide the foundation for advanced applications such as utility asset life cycle management and others that can benefit from the use of actual loading data.
Trilliant Energy Services offerings include turnkey submetering solutions, utility data profiling and online presentment to meet the needs of electric and natural gas utilities. Because Trilliant is an expert in energy technology the company’s solutions offer benefits to all stakeholders – from condo developers and corporations to owners and managers and directly to residential suite owners.
