Truckee Donner Public Utility District is a utility located in Northern California, providing water and electric service to the Truckee area. It is a non-profit publicly owned utility governed by locally elected board of directors of the district.
Improving Compliance Inspections. Managing an inspection program for all electric facilities with paper is troublesome and inefficient – especially when compliance reporting is required. For Truckee Donner Public Utility District, paperwork alone wasted valuable time of field personnel. In order to create return on investment while streamlining operations to meet public utility commission guidelines, the entire compliance inspection program was overhauled using GIS, GPS, and MIMS.
Measurable Improvement. As a result, field crews use mapping software to record all compliance inspections including any infractions and corrective actions. Information is automatically shared by corporate systems, which provide power tracking, assignment, and scheduling. Status and reporting is available in real-time using a web dashboard making compliance straightforward. Most notable, crews are inspecting instead of completing paperwork. Now a single inspector processes more than 100 records per hour.
