Tampa Electric Company Wins 2023 Itron Innovator Award for Advancing Public Safety and Load Management Solutions
Recognized for Leveraging Itron’s Partner Ecosystem to Deliver Economic Benefit and Expansion of Environmental Stewardship
The Itron Innovator Award acknowledges TECO’s Smart Cities and Load Management programs and recognizes the utility for the improvements that benefit
As part of its grid modernization project, TECO upgraded more than 200,0000 streetlights across its service territory from high-intensity discharge luminaires to energy-efficient LED technology in collaboration with multiple Itron Smart Cities technology partners. With smart streetlights, the utility can immediately detect lighting outages allowing for prompt response. The utility is streamlining its operations and creating greater efficiencies with the ability to remotely control the streetlight fixtures. With the Itron solution, TECO has saved money and significantly improved streetlight restoration response.
In addition, TECO is using Itron products for its Electric Vehicle distributed intelligence project. TECO’s Electric Vehicle project has allowed the utility to address localized demand increases on the grid. TECO continues to utilize Itron’s grid management solutions in conjunction with other Itron programs.
“TECO continues to make investments in new customer experiences and operational programs that support smart city and smart streetlight applications. We are thrilled to present the Itron Innovator Award to TECO for creating greater operational efficiencies and upgrading its legacy outdoor lighting infrastructure to enhance community safety,” said
