Inland Power & Light Selects Tantalus and Itron for Smart Grid Communications Network
Inland Power & Light (IPL) selected a Tantalus-Itron solution for public power to provide AMI and smart grid services for the approximately 39,000 members in its cooperative in eastern Washington and northern Idaho. The fully integrated TUNet platform will serve as the core foundation for IPL to deploy Itron meters to facilitate the use of advanced applications such as automated metering, interval meter data collection, prepay, and power quality management. This project is a joint effort between Tantalus, Itron, and General Pacific. IPL will utilize the newly released TUNet-enabled CENTRON II electric meters for their deployment.
