Public Power Solutions
We understand the unique challenges facing public power utilities of all sizes. Our intelligent line sensing, data analytics, and optimization technologies help public power utilities improve safety, reliability, and efficiency, while reducing energy and O&M costs.
Our intelligent sensors cover overhead feeders, laterals, and underground lines, providing a fast, cost-effective way to reduce outage duration and increase field crew productivity.
Grid Visibility & Reduced O&M Costs
Acting as a utility’s “eyes and ears” in the field, high-resolution sensors identify and analyze momentary faults and disturbances, allowing for preemptive action, and heading off larger, more sustained problems.
DER & EV Integration
Increasingly, renewable energy and electric vehicle grid integration cause demand and load pattern changes. Our intelligent sensors help manage bi-directional grid reliability.
Manpower & Resources
Easy-to-install sensors and customizable, targeted alerts with simplicity of monitoring save valuable manpower and resources.
Sentient Energy understands that member and community-owned power companies differ from their investor-owned counterparts. This is why we are a member of both the APPA (American Public Power Association) and the NRECA (National Rural Electric Cooperative Association).
The American Public Power Association is the service organization for the more than 2,000 U.S. community-owned electric utilities that serve more than 49 million Americans.
NRECA is the national service organization that represents more than 900 consumer-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperatives, public power districts, and public utility districts in the United States.
