Willdan’s LoadSEER Software Selected to Provide Distribution Planning and Forecasting for Huntsville Utilities

ANAHEIM, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 10, 2024-- Willdan Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: WLDN) announced today that Huntsville Utilities will deploy Integral Analytics’ LoadSEER software to enable advanced load forecasting and grid planning for the City of Huntsville, AL. LoadSEER will support Huntsville in preparing their grid for the growing adoption of distributed energy resources (DERs) and electric vehicles. Integral Analytics is Willdan’s wholly owned software subsidiary.

This enterprise software license enables geospatial forecasting and planning through LoadSEER. These features will improve decision-making and transparency in the development of Huntsville Utilities’ capital infrastructure budget.

“We’re excited to expand our LoadSEER user group to an Alabama-based municipal utility – our first in this state,” said Mike Bieber, Willdan’s CEO. “An increasing number of municipal utilities are recognizing LoadSEER’s ability to make it easier to plan and optimize their grid resources. Improved forecasting is especially important now, when electrical grids are growing more complex due to accelerated DER adoption.”
