Utilizing newly deployed Industrial Control Links water level sensors and a cloud platform for Internet of Things (IoT) devices provided by ACE IoT Solutions, the residents of Monroe, Louisiana have access to dashboards providing real-time water level measurements for Lake Bartholomew and two reservoirs outside of the city for the first time.
In the waning days of 2019, the City of Philadelphia passed a Building Tune-up law as a step towards reducing carbon emission in the city by 25% by 2025. Philadelphia joined a growing list of cities - including Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle and Washington DC - that have enacted Building Energy Performance Policies during the last decade. To learn more about Philadelphia’s Building Tune-up law and the Building Energy Performance Policies that have been enacted in several American cities, ACE IoT’s William Maguire interviewed Megan O’Neil, Manager of City Solutions at the Institute for Market Transformation.
Last month, the office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that LA’s City Council had approved development of the largest solar and battery energy system in the United States. The approved development will provide renewable energy for nearly one million residents at a fixed cost of less than 2 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for the power, the lowest price offered in U.S. history.
At ACE IoT, we are brimming with pride to be associated with this historic project. Indeed, we agree with Mayor Garcetti’s admonition that the coming decade needs to be “the action decade, the climate decade.” Projects that marry utility-scale battery storage to solar power projects represent a significant and exciting step forward.
