Michigan city picks Leidos to manage its smart grid initiative

RESTON, VA July 19, 2017 Leidos (NYSE: LDOS), a FORTUNE 500® science and technology company, will implement the Lansing Board of Water and Light's new smart grid initiative using its new Smart Grid Select™ offering. Through this contract, Leidos will manage the installation of the municipal utility's advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), as well as provide meter data management (MDM), customer support portals and advanced grid and business analytics.

Leidos will deliver a state-of-the-art solution crafted to meet Lansing's specific needs with an expected completion by 2020.  The Smart Grid Select™ solution leverages information from Honeywell's Elster business for electric metering technology, Mueller Systems for water metering technology, and Corix Utility Services for metering installation services. This advanced metering system solution will deliver cutting-edge analytics and insights, which will improve system capacity and transmission and distribution infrastructure, efficiently manage outages, and provide the ability to develop new rates based on customer usage patterns.

"As smart grid technologies become more sophisticated, Leidos has expanded its service offerings to meet the complex needs of today's utilities. We will provide Lansing with future-ready solutions that will optimize their smart grid approach," said Jim Baxter, senior vice president for Leidos' energy and systems solutions business. "We want to ensure the best value and solution for Lansing's rate payers, while reducing risk and lowering costs for the utility."

The Lansing Board of Water and Light was founded in 1885 and is the largest municipally owned electric utility in Michigan. The utility provides electric service and street lighting to approximately 95,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in the greater Lansing, Michigan area, and serves potable water to approximately 55,000 customers.
