Clean technology solutions provider Sensus has announced that the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC), which supports about 900 rural electric cooperatives, is now a value-added reseller of its data analytics solutions.

Sensus says that the NRTC will offer transformer utilization, load aggregation, alert and alarm management data analytics applications, and managed services to rural electric cooperative members across the U.S.

The company notes that the NRTC already offers Sensus smart grid technologies, including the FlexNet two-way communication network, smart meters, automation control and demand response solutions.

Since 2011, NRTC members have installed nearly 600,000 Sensus meters at various rural electric cooperatives, and Sensus reports that under the renewed agreement, the NRTC plans to install more than 1 million additional meters at cooperatives nationwide.

"The nation's electric cooperatives will now be able to collect, integrate and analyze data from smart meters and other sensors on their network," comments Ed Drew, vice president of utility solutions at the NRTC. "The ability of Sensus to also manage the data analytics applications as a turnkey solution will immediately drive operational cost savings for our members."
