CoServ Advanced Metering Project

Abstract

The Denton Country Electric Cooperative (CoServ Electric) Advanced Metering project involves the installation of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) throughout CoServ Electric’s service territory and explores the application of distribution automation and customer systems. The project is aimed at improving customer understanding of their electricity usage, reducing operations and maintenance costs, and improving awareness of and response to distribution system outages. The project implements 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 distribution automation, load management, and customer systems equipment.
