Central Maine Power Co. has chosen Itron Enterprise Edition Meter Data Management (IEE MDM) and its companion product IEE Customer Care to support the business and functional requirements of the utility's advanced smart grid project.

Central Maine Power will modernize its existing electric grid and improve customer engagement by leveraging the performance, reliability and flexibility of Itron's IEE solution running on Microsoft's SQL Server 2008 database. This data can be used to support programs that enable customers to make changes in the way they use electricity and ultimately in how much they spend.

IEE MDM provides the foundation to deliver high volume meter data to key enterprise applications, while IEE Customer Care provides consumers with Web access to a comprehensive view of their energy usage. SQL Server 2008 delivers an enterprise-class, scalable and secure database that is tightly integrated with IEE to enable advanced analytics and reporting for a variety of applications.
