The Power Commission is dedicated to providing excellent customer service and reliable, cost-effective power to our customers. Our service area covers approximately 330 square miles with an estimated population of 23,000.
New and Improved Metering System Installation
Over the last few months the Crisp County Power Commission has installed and tested a pilot project of new metering and communication equipment in its service territory through implementation of what’s commonly known as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). The AMI system will enable the Power Commission to directly communicate with all 13,000 meters located on its system.
The AMI Pilot Project included 500 meters located in the Southwest portion of the City of Cordele to test system performance in an area of high customer density and 500 meters in the Southeast part of Crisp County in an area of low customer density.
The Pilot Project has been successful and in August the Commission voted to move forward with a full rollout of the AMI system to the remainder of the Commission’s system. We have begun the full rollout and it will take approximately four months to complete.
Upon full implementation the AMI system will actually reduce the Power Commission’s overall cost while allowing significant new capabilities.
Use of the system will mean that Power Commission meter readers won’t have to make a physical trip to every meter on the system each month in order to record usage. Instead the system will allow the data to be collected remotely with no onsite visit. In addition the system will enable the Power Commission to offer improved customer service and lower costs in many ways other than just remote meter reading.
Actual meter change outs are being performed by a contractor (Allegiant) selected by the Commission.
