PENS provides insights using the U.S. National Grid (USNG) projection, which is a 1km x 1km grid overlaid on the United States.

What is PENS?

The Power Event Notification System (PENS) Provides the most comprehensive, independent, observational view of the power distribution grid.

We partner with communication companies to extract power data from primary aggregation points, and deliver it to our customers via low latency, private, and secure fiber networks.

PENS collects data from over 300,000 power sensors around the US.

150-million people in the US live or work within 1km of a Gridmetrics sensor.

Data updates every five minutes.

Coverage is tightly aligned with population density.

Power events displayed in US National Grid 1x1km cells.

Integrated into existing GIS systems, dashboards, and tools via APIs.
