CoServ Advanced Metering Project


The Denton Country Electric Cooperative (CoServ) Advanced Metering project installed advanced metering infrastructure throughout CoServ's service territory and explored the application of distribution automation and customer systems.

The project was aimed at improving customers' understanding of their electricity usage, reducing utility operations and maintenance costs, and improving CoServ's awareness of and response to distribution system outages. The project implemented two-way communications to (1) provide customers with more timely electricity usage information, (2) identify when and where outages are occurring, and (3) demonstrate the performance of select DA, load management, and customer systems equipment.
