Long Island Power Authority

Long Island Smart Energy Corridor


The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) is creating a Smart Energy Corridor located along Long Island, New York business Route 110. The Corridor work includes the 1) installation of smart meters; 2) upgrade and enhancement of monitoring equipment at three Corridor substations; and 3) the installation of additional distribution automation equipment. The project will evaluate the impact on customer behavior and consumption with alternative tariff structures, information and analytical tools provided. The project will demonstrate how distribution automation could reduce the number and duration of unplanned interruptions at reduced cost and with increased reliability. Stony Brook University is developing expert systems software in support of LIPA’s automation thrust, with cybersecurity capabilities. Farmingdale State College is supporting the project with public outreach through on-campus demonstration of small-scale wind, solar, plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) and fuel cells. An energy efficient model home is under construction and will be open to public tours to attract visitors to the campus and to promote energy efficiency concepts.
