ATCO Electric is implementing a meter data management solution to house its interval meter customer data. The technology will enable ATCO Electric to manage the data for approximately 1500 interval meters for its large industrial customers.

Nexus Energy Software was chosen to provide its Meter Vision meter data repository along with some additional functionality to support ATCO Electric’s load profiling needs. This application will provide ATCO Electric with a broad set of functionality that leverages meter and customer data to address key issues in energy service planning and delivery. The application will perform ATCO Electric’s critical functions of data integration, validation, estimation and editing (VEE) and data storage and management. Meter Vision has an open, accessible, and versatile architecture, maintaining a complete audit trail. ATCO Electric has already committed to an advanced metering infrastructure and has fully deployed a TWACS AMI system from Nexus’ sister company, DCSI, a subsidiary of ESCO Technologies Inc.

Nexus Energy Software is a provider of MDMS systems, including applications that leverage the data to support areas such as revenue protection, distribution planning, load research, forecasting, settlement, complex billing and customer service. Its MDMS solution is currently being used to manage the largest AMI system in North America in terms of data volume, the 1.4M meter system deployed by PPL in Pennsylvania that collects hourly data.
