San Antonio, TX, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — October 30, 2008 – CPS Energy has chosen utility software provider eMeter’s meter data management (MDM) solution, EnergyIP, for its smart meter build out in support of more than one million electric and gas smart meters.

CPS Energy will be implementing EnergyIP to support its complete meter-to-bill process, as well as the smart meter lifecycle. The latter includes smart meter asset management, installation support, device provisioning, and automated exception identification and handling. CPS Energy’s business case for MDM included significant benefits in all these areas.

“The technology will help us realize the benefits of our AMI investment by supporting our service-related goals such as improved outage management, better informed reliability planning, and enhanced customer services,” said Anthony Hawkins, director of system measurement and technology at CPS Energy.

eMeter and CPS Energy are both members of the Lighthouse Council, an SAP led group of utilities and smart grid companies working to enhance integration and connectivity with SAP’s suite of products.
