PERI Software is the only minority-owned smart grid technology leader in this industry providing end-to-end smart grid business solutions. The global business solutions company has been named among the nation's fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine earlier this month.
Most recently PERI was in high demand to discuss implementation of Smart Grid Technology. A national conference in Sacramento in July spotlighted PERI as one company that illustrated to national regulators and utility companies how the technology will cut costs in operations and reduce energy consumption.
"Smart grid technology is the wave of the future and we are doing our part to educate the public and media on its deployment," said Periasamy.
"Smart grid technology is mainly used by utilities, and thanks to the incentives program, it will be more affordable to municipalities and their customers," Periasamy said.
