Project Summary:

The Denton Country Electric Cooperative (CoServ Electric) Advanced Metering project involves the installation of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) throughout CoServ Electric’s service territory and explores the application of distribution automation and customer systems. The project is aimed at improving customer understanding of their electricity usage, reducing operations and maintenance costs, and improving awareness of and response to distribution system outages. The project implements two-way communications to: (1) provide customers with more timely electricity usage information, (2) identify when and where outages are occurring, and (3) demonstrate the performance of select distribution automation, load management, and customer systems equipment.

Equipment:

- 178,542 Smart Meters
- AMI Communication Systems
--- Meter Communications Network
--- Backhaul Communications
- Meter Data Management System
- 10 In-Home Displays
- 10 Programmable Communicating Thermostats
- 10 Direct Load Control Devices
- Distribution Automation Equipment (pilot-scale demonstration)
--- Distribution Automation Communications Network
--- Automated Distribution Circuit Switches
--- Automated Capacitors
--- Automated Voltage Regulators

Targeted Benefits:

- Reduced Meter Reading Costs
- Reduced Operating and Maintenance Costs
- Increased Electric Service Reliability and Power Quality
- Reduced Costs from Equipment Failures and Theft
- Optimized Generator Operation
- Reduced Ancillary Service Cost
- Reduced Greenhouse Gas and Criteria Pollutant Emissions
- Reduced Truck Fleet Fuel Usage
