Smart grid analytics firm Verdeeco has announced it is providing multiple big data applications to Florida-based Talquin Electric Cooperative Inc. (TECI).

Following an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployment, the electric utility recognized a data load increase of 73,000%, prompting the need for improved data analytics and customer engagement, Verdeeco says.

TECI currently employs Verdeeco's Meter Insight, Alarm Console, Device Access and the Customer Billing Application. In the future, the utility will expand its use of Verdeeco's products to include Voltage Monitoring, Transformer Loading, Unbilled Revenue and the Customer Portal applications.

"We quickly realized a need for better data analytics and desired a modular system that would not only gather and report data, but would also provide us with actionable intelligence to further improve customer service,” comments Jeremy Nelms, TECI's director of engineering services.
