URL More about Long Island Power Authority Long Island Smart Energy Corridor
Twelve sealed absorbed glass mat (AGM) lead acid batteries planned for demonstration of storage in the residential demonstration model at Farmingdale; 60 Amp, 720 W, 12 V. The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) is teaming with Stony Brook University and Farmingdale State College to create a Smart Energy Corridor located along Route 110 in Melville, Farmingdale, and South Huntington, New York. The demonstration project will integrate advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technology with automated substation and distribution systems to reduce peak demand and energy costs while improving the ability to identify and respond to outages. AMI will be installed at 2,338 consumer locations, 1,488 will be residential. Data collectors will be installed along the Corridor to facilitate network communications. LIPA will install digital control and communications devices on 51 capacitor banks and will also install devices that automate monitoring and control of 18 overhead switches and 6 underground switches. A key aspect of this project is to evaluate the impact of a range of variables on customer behavior and consumption, including an alternative tariff structure, provision of varying levels of information and analytical tools, and outreach and energy automation for a sample of participating customers. Demonstration projects at the Farmingdale campus will include live residential and commercial models showing how intelligent devices can enable customers to understand and control their usage and integrate distributed renewable energy. Farmingdale will also provide training and education to students, technicians, and businesses as well as outreach to the community. Stony Brook University will investigate cyber security issues, research load forecasting and modeling techniques that leverage Smart Grid data, and develop tools to help customers better visualize and understand their energy usage.
