Utility Systems Tech., Inc.


Utility Systems Technologies, Inc. (UST), is a corporation founded in 1991 with offices in Watervliet, New York. UST was formed to offer consulting to the utility industry for equipment design and forensic failure analysis. An outgrowth of this work was the development of several products that solved power quality problems caused by the combination of utility deregulation, the changing nature of electrical loads, and the soaring cost of electricity. UST has designed and is manufacturing several unique electronic power quality devices to address these power quality needs.
