Honeywell and CPS Energy Expand Efforts to Help Make the Electrical Grid Smarter

Honeywell and CPS Energy (CPS) announced a two-year program where CPS will use automated demand response (ADR) technology and services from Honeywell. The program is expected to be the largest ADR deployment by a municipal utility, and will build on a pilot project that CPS Energy and Honeywell completed last year. The pilot included nine commercial and industrial facilities, and helped trim demand by approximately 1.5 MW. Honeywell and CPS Energy will look to enroll 60 additional sites, bringing the potential reduction to nearly 6 MW. Honeywell will also provide its Akuacom Demand Response Automation Server, software as a service (SaaS) that enables CPS Energy to send signals to building automation systems at sites enrolled in the program.
