Emergency power outages cost the US $30 billion each year. iRestore is a suite of location-based mobile apps that help electric utilities rapidly restore power during an emergency power outage. Faster restoration equates to a more resilient grid, more satisfied customers and safer citizens.
iRestore connects the $600 Billion US utility market with first responders in local government, helping utilities to rapidly sense problems and respond appropriately. The iRestore First Responder app currently enables over 2,000 municipal first responders (fire & police) across 4 states to provide their utility “eyes-on” the scene of grid or gas line damage. iRestore has already won large scale deployments at some of the leading utilities in the US.
iRestore was the first in the world (see http://bit.ly/2mDzC2G) to crowdsource information from municipal first responders (fire and police) to help utility dispatchers pinpoint grid damage & prioritize response. iRestore's patent pending apps and platform allow utility mobile workers to "See. Touch. Respond." iRestore can analyze its dataset to automatically recommend appropriate utility response to an event.
Utilities spend $1.5B each year on outage management systems which typically focus on "who" is out of power. iRestore focuses on "why" they are out of power, providing advanced situational awareness to utilities, speeding service restoration. We do it in a way that leverages utility partnerships with local governments and municipalities.
