Lafayette Consolidated Government’s Lafayette Utilities System (LUS) Smart Grid project involves the deployment of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), distribution automation equipment, and advanced monitoring equipment for the transmission system. LUS expects the smart meters to reduce meter reading costs, lower vehicle emissions through fewer truck rolls, and enable advanced electric services for its customers. These services include an enhanced Web portal and introduction of time-based rate programs. A network of new transmission and distribution assets provides improved reliability, reduced grid operations and maintenance costs, reduced outage duration, reduced peak loads, and reduced overall energy usage across LUS’s service territory.
