Salt River Project (SRP), the largest electricity provider in the greater Phoenix area, has selected Emerson’s OSI digital grid solutions to reliably manage its distribution power grid, optimize operations and incorporate a growing supply of distributed energy resources. Emerson’s technologies and smart grid platform will coordinate the utility’s distribution operations that provide power to more than 1 million customers in central Arizona.
This project is part of SRP’s multiyear plan to address next-generation grid challenges, including managing sustainable and fast-expanding distributed energy resources such as solar panels, wind turbines and cogeneration plants, as well as handling bidirectional power flow and allowing more intermittent sources of power into the system. Emerson’s OSI Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) built on the monarch operational technology platform enables utilities to improve system reliability, efficiency and safety by managing, analyzing and optimizing the entire distribution network.
Salt River Project is a community-based, not-for-profit public power utility and the largest provider of electricity in the greater Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area, serving more than one million customers. SRP is also the metropolitan area’s largest supplier of water, delivering about 800,000 acre-feet annually to municipal, urban, and agricultural water users.
Emerson’s OSI digital grid technologies offer an expandable and adaptable platform that enables a reliable, efficient electricity distribution network that is flexible to real-time needs.
