TechAdvantage, an event that attracts professionals from electric cooperative engineering, energy services, operations, information technology, purchasing, and supply management, will be held March 6–9, 2012, in San Diego, California.
"We have taken the Electric Distribution Operations Dashboard template from Esri and made it work for us," said Todd Harrington, GIS administrator for Union Power Cooperative. "We learned that the dashboard provided more information to our employees and was much faster and easier to use than our existing digital maps."
Within the first week of implementing the dashboard, the utility recovered more than $3,000 lost to meter tampering. Operators also report a considerable savings in time since personnel are no longer tied up with the tasks of extracting data, cleaning it up, and producing maps.
Attendees of TechAdvantage can visit Esri at booth #1439 and connect with Union Power Cooperative by attending the paper session Tying It all Together, on Thursday, March 8, at 8:00 a.m.
