eMeter helps CPS Energy expand smart meter initiative in Texas

San Mateo, Calif., September 14, 2011 — Global smart grid information platform provider eMeter successfully completed the integration of its eMeter EnergyIP platform with CPS Energy's SAP IS-U EhP5 system.

This integration enables CPS Energy, a utility with a 1.1 million meter service territory in San Antonio, Texas, to provide its customers with real-time energy usage information and enhanced metering services. It also integrates a meter data usage system and SAP's recently released IS-U EhP5 system. 

CPS Energy now provides 40,000 of its customers with 15 minute, hourly and daily energy consumption information through its new web portal. This is made possible through the use of eMeter EnergyIP's interval data framing service, which aggregates data into hourly and daily consumption values. CPS Energy also uses eMeter EnergyIP's real-time validation and estimation service to ensure that customers have timely and accurate information.

In addition to providing energy consumption information, CPS Energy also provides its customers with enhanced metering services such as remote connects/disconnects and on-demand reads. Additional future services include time-of-use rate plans and demand response programs. CPS Energy plans to replace all electric meters and retrofit gas meters with smart meters by the end of 2016.
