Landis+Gyr has announced that the Guam Power Authority (GPA), the electric power provider for the U.S. territory of Guam, has selected the Gridstream RF advanced metering solution for its project to implement smart grid technology.

GPA plans to deploy more than 52,000 advanced meters and Gridstream network components over the next two years. The utility will deploy E-350 FOCUS AX-SD meters with integrated service switch and ZigBee capabilities to the majority of its residential customers. The Gridstream RF network will provide a backbone for possible communication with other grid devices and home area network applications in the future.

"We have been working directly with GPA over the past two years to help identify the ways Gridstream can meet their long-term needs," says Abe Ortega, vice president of international sales and marketing at Landis+Gyr. "GPA will have many options for using smart grid solutions to impact customer service, improve efficiency and manage operating costs."
