Trilliant, a California-based smart grid communications and solutions provider, has announced the full-scale roll-out of a smart grid deployment with the Victoria Electric Cooperative in Victoria, Texas.

Building on a successful 2011 pilot program, this deployment leverages the Trilliant Communications Platform and consists of Trilliant's multi-tier SecureMesh solution, which enables advanced metering, advanced distribution automation and demand-side management applications.

According to the company, Victoria Electric's smart grid deployment will leverage Trilliant’s solutions to improve operational efficiency, provide interval data for critical peak pricing and time-of-use rates, as well as to enhance outage detection. The deployment will be completed by the end of 2014.

“Trilliant was an ideal partner for our installation, as the technology provides a strong foundation for the smart grid system in Victoria today, while also leaving us with a range of options for future smart grid applications,” says Blaine Warzecha, general manager at the Victoria Electric Cooperative.
