The Valley Group

The Valley Group’s goal is to provide innovative solutions and services to our utility customers to optimize CAPEX and address the evolving needs for a fully dispatchable, physically secure and flexible transmission system. The successful completion of the DOE co-funded Smart Grid Demonstration Project (SGDP) with Oncor Delivery in Texas showed that end-to-end integrated Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) has a substantial impact on existing or new transmission lines in the following areas: a) optimizes asset utilization b) cost effectively accommodates generation shift c) improves grid reliability through enhanced wide area situational awareness d) aids in congestion cost reduction e) optimizes generation dispatch and f) facilitates integration of renewable generation
