Distribution Management System

Central Hudson is investing in a Distribution Management System (DMS), a multi-year initiative providing better control and enhanced monitoring of the electric distribution system. DMS provides two primary benefits for customers: improving the reliability of electric service, and enhancing system efficiency to help lower customers’ energy use and reduce energy costs. Communications and system monitoring is made possible with the implementation of Network Strategy, a configuration of fiber optic and wireless communications devices that provide real time system data to a control center. Under development, this system will allow for remote monitoring and control of devices along the grid to shorten restoration times during outages, save energy and boost system performance.

Year of the Veteran

Central Hudson celebrates locally the Year of the Veteran, and partners with Troops to Energy Jobs, a program that helps U.S. military service veterans make a successful transition to a rewarding career in the energy industry. The program provides veterans with educational and career counseling, as well as job placement assistance. Seventy-three veterans are currently employed at Central Hudson, comprising more than 7 percent of our work force, with 22 hired since Troops to Energy was launched in 2014.
