Leidos, an engineering, national security and health solutions company, has landed two contracts in North Carolina for its smart grid-as-a-service (SGS) offering.

The SGS platform, Leidos notes, is a comprehensive, cloud-based, end-to-end managed services solution for utilities. The company adds the integrated hardware and software platform provides advanced metering infrastructure, outage alerts/analysis, remote disconnect/connect capabilities, time of use and net metering, as well as analytic and predictive capabilities. The solution also provides two portals that enable utilities to operate the system and consumers to monitor and manage their consumption.

According to the company, the City of Kings Mountain, N.C., has awarded Leidos a 10-year contract for the second phase of its SGS deployment. After completing a 1,200-meter smart grid pilot project, Leidos says it will deploy meters over Kings Mountain's entire service area during this phase of the project.

In addition, Leidos reports that the City of Gastonia, N.C., will implement the company's SGS solution. Leidos is working with Gastonia to deploy smart electric meters to residential, commercial and industrial customers, and the pilot program is expected to be operational by June.
