Scott Bussing, VP Sales of GRID20/20 stated, "The caliber of partners we have added to our team is tremendous. Through these professional organizations, we now have a daily presence within IOU, Municipal and Cooperative electric utilities spanning a 22 state area, and we're just getting started." GRID20/20 addresses a host of distribution optimization and automation needs, including critical asset loading data, preventive maintenance awareness, increased outage notification capability, costly power theft loss detection, conservation voltage enhancements, and many additional smart grid value propositions.

Darren Frietas of 5 Steps, LLC serving the Hawaii market commented, "We are assisting the local utilities with meeting the challenges of modernizing the electrical grid by providing the equipment, gateways, communications, and the GRID20/20 solution to improve reliability, stability, and reduce the length of outages."
