DTE Energy Selects Tropos for Smart Grid!

The big news for Tropos last week was that our technology was selected for DTE Energy’s SmartCurrents program. SmartCurrents is DTE Energy’s first smart grid program which will span over 500 square miles of their service territory and include AMI and distribution automation applications.


“We selected the Tropos mesh as we expect it to provide greater reliability, plus it has the capacity and security to support AMI backhaul, distribution automation, mobile workforce automation and other smart grid applications.”
