Duquesne Light Company to Improve Operational Efficiency with Itron’s Smart Street Lighting Solution

Pennsylvania Utility to Take Advantage of Itron’s IIoT Street Lighting Canopy to Modernize its Infrastructure and Enable Smart City Applications

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — March 8, 2023 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), which is innovating the way utilities and cities manage energy and water, announced it has signed a contract with Duquesne Light Company (DLC) to improve operational efficiency, modernize its infrastructure and enable smart city applications with Itron’s smart street lighting solution.

A provider of safe, reliable and resilient electricity to more than 600,000 customers in Allegheny and Beaver counties located in southwestern Pennsylvania, DLC will deploy approximately 60,000 Itron mesh-enabled streetlight nodes to provide secure two-way monitoring and control for outdoor street and area lighting. DLC will also utilize Itron’s leading smart cities central management software, Streetlight.Vision (SLV), along with SLV:GO, an integrated field operations platform from Itron partner, TerraGo Technologies, to accelerate deployment. This will equip the utility to improve energy efficiencies and optimize streetlight performance with advanced asset management, analytics and control capabilities. With this solution, the utility will be able to enhance the customer experience and improve operations by proactively alerting DLC of lamp failures, location changes and power supply failures. In addition, the smart streetlights will provide a multi-application industrial IoT (IIoT) canopy capable of supporting additional smart city and smart utility sensors and applications.

“As part of DLC’s vision of a clean energy future for all, we are committed to investing in new technologies that benefit our communities and customers and ensure a more sustainable, equitable future,” said Yvonne Phillips, director of meter operations at DLC. “We look forward to modernizing our lighting infrastructure with Itron’s smart street lighting solution, which will improve asset maintenance and enhance operational efficiency while also enabling additional smart city applications as the need arises in the future.”

“We are thrilled to collaborate with DLC to deploy a smart lighting solution that will proactively meet the needs of tomorrow, today,” said John Marcolini, senior vice president of Networked Solutions at Itron. “With our solution, DLC will be able to save energy and improve asset management with real-time visibility into every streetlight while simultaneously laying a foundation for future IIoT and smart city use cases.”
