New Product Overview

Homac STORM SAFE™

Connector Systems

Presented by:

Roy Jazowski - Director of R&D

Mark Hammer – Director of Marketing & Sales

slide3
In 2005, Homac and the “Electric Power Research

Institute” EPRI, entered into an agreement to

jointly develop a family of connector devices which

would break during hurricane/storm conditions

when service entrance power lines are hit with

trees, branches or flying debris

Project Overview

slide4
The goal of the project was to design a family of products which would:

Mitigate damage to power line structures and systems

Restore power quickly

Eliminate damage to customer’s service entrance equipment

Project Overview

slide5
Improve SAIFI (System Average Interruption Frequency Index) and SAIDI (System Average Interruption Duration

Index) for utilities

using Storm Safe

products during

severe weather

conditions

Additional Project Goals

slide6
Improve safety to the public and repair crews by insuring that the lines are de-energized when they fall to the ground

Improve utility reliability by restoring power quickly, with no costly repair charges to both the utility and the customer

Additional Project Goals

slide7
Improve site safety during storm damage conditions

The Challenge

  • Find a way to mitigate damage to service wires, customer equipment & secondary performance
slide9
Benefits
  • SAIDI improved – faster restoration time
  • SAIFI improved – secondary stays in as service clears without tripping primary mitigating additional downstream outages
  • O&M Costs – no damage to terminal pole and minimal exposure to service damage, faster restoration time
  • Customer satisfaction – avoids need for entrance repairs ($800 – $2,500), restoration faster, less transient exposure
  • Safety
    • Homeowner – mitigates transients
    • Public – wires are deenergized on the ground
    • Crews – wires are dead and clear
slide10

Field Experience

STORM SAFE

w/ 3 Services

Three months after proto installation, tree took one service down

Second and third service drops remained intact

Service mast survived

slide12
STORM SAFE can be applied in any overhead service drop application. It is adaptable to any location:

Mechanical Breakaway sized to utility specification

Multiple drops served off 1 STORM SAFE(1-3 on one pole)

Single drop for low density or wide spread, such as opposite sides of the pole

New construction or retrofit; pre or post storm

Restore service with a new fuse link; plug and energize

Unique Homac, Patented Solution

Available 3rd Quarter 2006

Our History

In the early 1960’s, electric utility companies began to transition from overhead distribution lines to underground installations

In 1964, Homac’s founder invented and patented the 1st connector designed specifically for underground residential distribution (URD) – the Homac “Hub” connector

slide19

Our History

Homac pioneered the use of EPDM rubber for insulating and

waterproofing underground cable connectors

Homac’s “Flood-Seal”® technology provided a unique, cost- effective solution to the industry – and a preferred alternative to epoxy, tape and heat-shrink for underground cable joints

slide20

Our History

  • Designing underground connectors with
  • interference-fit rubber’s stretch and memory
  • characteristics provides superior tension on
  • the cable-connector interface resulting in
  • indefinite waterproof integrity
slide21

Our History

Today, Homac has grown to become the leader in the design and manufacture of electric power delivery connector solutions

Homac is the industry’s largest manufacturer of secondary underground distribution connectors

And a recognized leader in overhead distribution and substation connectors

Facts:

  • Improving Electric System Reliability is Driving U/G Growth
  • U/G Electric Systems Mitigate Outages Due to Severe Weather
  • Improving the Aesthetics of the Electric System is Driving U/G Growth
  • Security Concerns May Help Drive Additional U/G Growth
  • U/G Cable Placement Growing 8 Times the Rate of O/H
  • Today, Less Than 15% of Distribution Cable is Currently U/G
  • Homac Supports National, State & Customer Initiatives That Focus On

Improving the Electric Power Delivery Infrastructure, Electric System

Reliability & Electric System Safety!
