The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has selected Landis+Gyr to deploy advanced metering and smart grid technology on Fire Island, located along the south shore of Long Island, N.Y.

The utility will install Landis+Gyr's Gridstream RF network - which enables communication with advanced meters, distribution devices and home area network technology - along with 4,500 E-350 FOCUS AX-SD advanced meters.

"This project is another example of the tangible benefits an advanced metering solution can deliver," says Gary High, vice president of sales at Landis+Gyr. "Gridstream is proven to promote efficiency and reliability of distribution systems, while improving customer service and providing the information to help manage energy better."
