O&R to Develop Advanced Weather Forecasting Tool

Orange & Rockland Utilities is partnering with Central Hudson Gas & Electric to develop a new weather forecasting tool that provides real-time predictions on storm outages, electrical load and renewable energy generation. O&R spokesman Mike Donovan says the project relies on various public weather data sources, including sensors that are being installed at large New York solar farms, and from the University at Albany’s Weather & Climate Analytics group…

The tool will be created in two phases over the next two years with $1.7 million in external funding, $1.2 million of that coming from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
