Sequentric Energy Systems LLC and HD Supply Power Solutions have announced that Massachusetts-based utility Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) has begun deploying Sequentric's demand response technology.

Sequentric says its demand response system obtains energy-related telemetry and allows for real-time dispatching. The system is Internet Protocol based, and all software runs on servers installed inside the utility's secured IT infrastructure, thereby providing safe and reliable operations, the company adds.

"The Sequentric management server and SQL database (structured programing language) installed easily in our secured IT data center,” says Jared Carpenter, energy efficiency and renewable engineer at RMLD. “Immediately, it enabled the automation of our customized load-shedding schedules, gave us the ability to override the shedding schedules for holidays and provided near-instantaneous all-points load-shedding capability. We are now collecting a tremendous amount of data that we are analyzing daily to help determine new demand management strategies.”
