Waukesha, Wis., November 4, 2010 – Cooper Power Systems, a division of Cooper industries, was selected by Mohave Electric Cooperative to deploy an advanced metering infrastructure solution as part of its Smart Grid Program Initiative.
Funding provided by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act will support a portion of the 25,000 new electric smart meters featured within the AMI solution envisioned for Mohave Electric Cooperative – which is currently providing electricity to more than 39,000 services over some 1,445 miles of energized line, with an electrical service area of nearly 1,300 square miles across three counties.
The AMI solution deployment will extend over a rapid 12-month period in order for Mohave Electric Cooperative to immediately experience the benefits of the smart meter’s two-way communication.
Mohave Electric Cooperative will leverage Cooper Power Systems‘ Yukon advanced energy services software platform to interface with third-party software using a MultiSpeak interface.
With more than 250 installations, Cooper Power Systems’ Yukon advanced energy services software platform is helping cooperatives, municipals, and investor-owned utilities increase billing accuracy, improve operational efficiencies and achieve extraordinary customer satisfaction levels.
Yukon’s integrated delivery process and Web-based management dashboards provide real-time visibility into program performance, operational efficiencies, and other defined metrics – as well as interfaces to a variety of third-party applications.
