Advancements in our electric service offering
Modern technology and infrastructure is driving innovation to create efficiency, improve service quality and reliability, and offer new opportunities for you!
It all begins with foundational communications infrastructure. In this case, a fiber optic backbone that can be used for endless applications.
A New SCADA System
What you see here is a screen shot of a SCADA system. A “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition” system. This system allows us to monitor and control substation equipment in real time. In other words, in the event of a power outage, chances are pretty good we are aware of the outage as soon as it occurs. This allows us to remotely restore power or to send Tipmont’s fantastic lineman to restore service more quickly. The data that supports this application travels over our fiber optic backbone.
Mobile service orders
Another electric application using our fiber system is mobile service orders. Tipmont’s service crews can transmit and receive service and work order data without shuffling paper or being required to drive into the office a few times a day. This means more efficient and faster service for you!
A Second Energy Advisor
Finally, not everything relies on our fiber optic system. In fact, the smartest and most technologically advanced asset Tipmont has is its employees. These two smiling guys are Kevin and Grant. They know just about all there is to know about saving energy. If you’ve been fortunate enough to have these guys conduct an energy assessment in your home, you know what I’m talking about. If not, I strongly encourage you to give them a call to schedule a FREE assessment.
Broadband Build Strategy
- Broadband will eventually be available to every Tipmont member.
- We will connect our first customers in Linden later this year.
- We have a lot of fiber to build!
As you can imagine, the Tipmont electric system took many years to build. Building the fiber network will be as great a challenge as building the electric system – but it’s a challenge we are prepared to meet! Tipmont has dedicated thousands of hours in preparation over the last 18 months – and we’re ready!
We are however, still evaluating the expected time frame to build out the whole network. I’d rather not speculate how long it will take at this time. But your demonstrated interest and commitment can help accelerate the build process. In a moment, I’ll show you how to register your support and interest in receiving these exciting new services
