Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) Serves as Edge Zero’s First U.S. Customer, Following the Australian Company’s Launch in North America Earlier this Year

Edge Zero

Posted June 25, 2024

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2024 / -- Edge Zero, an Australia-based energy technology company that provides real-time visibility and management of the low voltage (LV) electric grid, is now actively providing monitoring solutions for Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC), its first customer in the United States. VEC, which serves over 34,000 rural members and maintains a dynamic grid with more than 30 MW of rooftop solar, will leverage the Edge Zero solution to enable round-the-clock power quality monitoring on its LV network. This comes as last week, the Vermont Generally Assembly passed bill H. 289, mandating utilities in the state generate 100% of electricity using renewable sources.

At the start of 2024, VEC had limited visibility into power quality and limited fault detection below its zone substation level. To help it prepare for more distributed solar and electric vehicles (EVs) to enter its service territory, the utility selected Edge Zero’s transformer monitor, the Grid Logger, and its EdgeConnected™ platform to provide visibility into these blind spots on its distribution grid. Real-time transformer data is now being used to support dynamic operating thresholds that interface with some of the utility’s other software systems, including its distributed energy resource management system (DERMS), ensuring a more efficient and reliable grid operation.

“VEC is seeking to integrate a variety of distributed energy resources to maintain affordability and reliability for our members,” stated Cyril Brunner, Innovation and Technology Leader at VEC. “Edge Zero’s solution will help VEC identify grid constraints to generate a complete picture of our distribution grid so that we can manage distributed energy resources to reduce infrastructure impacts resulting from the energy transition.”
