Southern California Edison uses Resin Systems advanced technology in its
"Circuit of the Future"
CALGARY, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - Resin Systems Inc. ("RS") (RS - TSX / RSSYF -
OTCBB), a developer of innovative advanced material products, announced that
its RStandard(TM) modular composite utility poles were selected for Southern
California Edison's "Circuit of the Future", the most advanced neighborhood
electricity circuit in the United States. The "Circuit of the Future" was
featured in the NY Times on-line edition on October 16, 2007.
Southern California Edison (SCE), the largest electric utility in
California, designed and installed this circuit using industry leading
technology to give customers surer electricity service, fewer outages with
faster service restoration and lower future costs than would otherwise occur.
RStandard composite utility poles were among the several advanced
technologies used in this pioneering project, which recently began delivering
power to Southern California Edison's customers.
"We selected the Resin Systems product because it is lighter and
therefore can be installed much faster, reducing customer outage time," said
James A. Kelly, SCE vice president for engineering. "And the fact that these
innovative poles are built in segments means they are easier for our crews to
move to work sites."
Because RStandard utility poles' are made with advanced materials and a
unique design, they provide benefits that old-style wooden utility poles
cannot. Some of the benefits they provide are non-conductivity, lightweight
modular construction, reduced labor and associated equipment costs, reduced
maintenance costs and increased pole maneuverability and handling.
"We are pleased that our technology is an integral part of this next
generation electricity circuit," said Paul Giannelia, president and chief
executive officer of RS. "As North America modernizes its electric
infrastructure, we intend for RStandard utility poles to be an important part
of that process."
