Liberty Lake, Wash., January 28, 2011 — Southern California Edison has completed the installation of Itron Enterprise Edition Meter Data Management, a key component in the Edison SmartConnect smart metering system.
Itron's software will soon help SCE offer its customers new pricing plans, programs and services allowing customers to make better-informed decisions about their energy use.
SCE’s Edison SmartConnect program has already installed more than two million Itron OpenWay smart meters for residential and small-business customers in the utility’s 50,000-square-mile service territory.
The company will install a total of about five million smart meters by the end of 2012.
Using meter and meter-related data from IEE MDM, SCE will export data to an enterprise data warehouse from Teradata, an Itron partner, to support customer web presentment.
Throughout the project, SCE and Itron worked collaboratively to ensure the successful deployment of new smart meters. The project leveraged Itron’s unique ability to deliver a comprehensive and fully integrated end-to-end solution.
It also included jointly executed scale and performance tests under SCE’s daily operational conditions and peak-day conditions, as well as billing hourly and 15-minute interval data.
