Quadlogic Controls has developed effective solutions for electric utilities experiencing “Theft-of-Service” or non-technical losses. These unauthorized loads not only reduce revenue and waste energy, they also place stresses on the grid by increasing demand and accelerating transformer failures due to unbalanced loads. Quadlogic’s Energy Guard enables remote connection and disconnection of electric service, remote meter reading, and provides in-house display of account status and messaging. The Energy Guard has provided dramatic loss reduction for utilities in Jamaica, Mexico, Costa Rica, and is currently in trials in several countries. In 2011 Quadlogic won the Wall Street Journal's "Most Innovative Company" competition for its development of Energy Guard.
