Morristown Utility Systems has deployed conservation voltage regulation (CVR) technology from smart grid solutions provider Efacec ACS across its East Tennessee Valley transmission and distribution systems.

According to Efacec, the application runs on its PRISM SCADA System, using end-of-line voltage alarms provided by the utility's Tantalus AMI system to help enable accurate closed-loop control capability.

"The new technology empowers us to not only comply with voltage control demand response directives we receive from the Tennessee Valley Authority, but to manage load resources in a highly targeted manner," says Jim Belcher, a Morristown demand response engineer. "It helps us minimize our peak demand charges and deliver consistent customer experience, helping to keep rates low."
