In a world of overused marketing slogans that promise a smarter grid, Gridco is actually delivering on that promise. The company is developing a new class of distribution grid infrastructure components that are being used by over a dozen utilities worldwide to address existing and emerging challenges.

The Gridco Systems emPower Solution™ is recognized by utilities and industry experts as the most cost-effective way to reliably integrate Distributed Energy Resources (DER), increase energy savings from Volt-VAR Optimization (VVO) and Conservation Voltage Reduction (CVR) programs, implement utility-side demand response, improve capacity utilization, and improve customer voltage assurance and power quality. Since its release in early 2014, the Gridco Systems emPower Solution has been widely adopted as utilities begin to lay the foundation for modern, flexible and agile distribution systems.

“We are honored to be recognized by these leading industry voices,” said Naimish Patel, CEO of Gridco Systems. “Thanks to the work of our dedicated team and partnerships with customers, we are making significant progress towards a future where distribution utilities will play an even greater role in reliability, safety, affordability, and service flexibility. As the use of photovoltaics and electric vehicles increases, and as states embark on VVO/CVR programs, our customers see the need for more distributed and dynamic control of power flow and power quality within their distribution systems. Our goal is to be their trusted partner in helping address those needs in the most cost-effective manner.”
