When it comes to deploying state-of-the-art technology, LCUB is working hard to become one of the leaders in the region. An automated metering system for all utility services has been instituted which will streamline billing, ensure accuracy, and provide proactive issue notification of any problems to our customers. Advances in this system soon will enable customers to manage their use, and therefore lower their bills.
LCUB’s newly installed SCADA system and OMS system help engineers identify problems and provide quicker response times when outages and other problems occur.
LCUB is also installing the latest technology in substation relaying/automation and field reclosers. The installation of these technologies, along with LCUB’s newly installed fiber ring, allows us to start moving forward toward the the operation of a self-healing grid. The self-heaing grid will automatically restore sections of the power grid and pinpoint the cause and location of the interruption.
