GridSense, an Acorn Energy company, has received an approximately $1 million order from a Southeast Asian national utility for 700 units of its Distribution IQ and Line IQ, enabled by Grid InSite software.

GridSense did not reveal the name of the national utility and says the order is based on a partnership with a regional smart grid company. The company adds that the deal represents a conversion from a pilot to an initial commercial order.

"Electric grid reliability is essential for the continued economic expansion of the customer's country,” says GridSense's John Moore. “We are excited to be in on the ground floor of the modernization of the electric grid of this emerging nation.”
