community centre project
The former Oakville hospital site is being rejuvenated into a state-of-the-art community center. OEC Innovation along with Oakville Hydro are integrating numerous technologies to increase green power use and reduce power consumption.
How can utilities reduce power outage time, improve reliability and overall customer satisfaction? OEC Innovation and Oakville Hydro are developing and taking to trial a fully integrated Advanced Distribution Management System, with the aim to accomplish all this. The success of this system will benefit over 40+ Ontario Local Distribution Companies. This project was a 2018 CEA Award recipient.
smart grid fund projects
The goal of the Ontario Smart Grid Fund is to support the progressive modernization of Ontario's electricity distribution grid and we're pleased to bring these changes to the Town of Oakville. In this project Oakville Hydro is looking to automate downtown Oakville's grid and deploy a unified data platform for the Town.
