  • Richmond-Petersburg, VA (1888PressRelease) October 18, 2010 - Intelagrid, LLC, a leading provider of advanced metering and smart grid infrastructure based on open standards, announced today that it has been selected by Marblehead Municipal Light Department (MMLD) to provide advanced networking products and services for its over 9,300 electric meters.

    Marblehead will begin installing equipment by March, and it will take approximately 18 months to complete. The meter-replacement program is part of a national DOE program to manage electricity usage. As part of the program, the Light Department will run a pilot program to test dynamic pricing at the residential level. With smart meters, individual consumers can monitor their usage on a web site or on their smart phone.

    "This program takes us to the next level," Robert Jolly, General Manager of the Municipal Light Commission said after an earlier meeting with the Light Commissioners last week. "It is cutting edge, a state of the art program." The system includes several features, such as a portal for consumers to monitor their own usage in real time, that only Intelagrid could provide. Marblehead reviewed other industry offerings but came to the conclusion that the other companies were using "old school" technologies or were significantly more expensive. Jolly recommended to the Commission that the department begin negotiations with Intelagrid.

    "We are very excited to work with the Town of Marblehead on its smart grid initiative," said Haim Shaul, co-founder and CMO of Intelagrid. "Bob Jolly has a very forward-thinking vision for Marblehead and we are pleased that our system supports a 21st century smart grid."
