Trico Electric, a non-for-profit cooperative serving more than 38 thousand customers in southern Arizona wanted to automate a crucial line on their overhead system, located in the remote Mt. Lemmon vicinity. A popular skiing and hiking destination, Mt. Lemmon’s geography and limited communication options naturally present service repair challenges.
S&C Electric Company and Trico Electric knew that automating this line would be difficult but crucial to area reliability and service. Trico needed a cost-effective, flexible solution to accommodate growth, withstand extreme weather and integrate existing serial and new Ethernet devices. An S&C mesh radio solution featuring SpeedNet™ Radios addressed these issues. View the entire case study here.
