Web-based product for managing the inspection and restoration of electricity to the grid

Impact

Reduced turnaround time
to reenergize the circuit by at least 4x
Eliminated dependency of paper process
to track the work completed for reenergization process.
Reduced legal liability
from adverse events which occur 4-5 times per year.

The challenge

Client needed a new technology to track re-energizing the grid during wildfire and storm season while increasing the workforce accountability and management.

Nexient solution

Nexient developed a custom development web application which allows supervisors to assign patrol work on the segment of overhead conductor, and tracks the amount of work completed to re-energize a portion of a circuit. Functionality also ensures the workload is distributed across work force to reduce the turnaround time for re-energizing process, and makes sure any major repair work is tracked and completed before the circuit is ready to be re-energized.

PSPS reduces the legal liability from adverse events (such as wildfire event) which occur at least 4-5 events per year.

The results

This utility app reduced the turnaround time to reenergize the circuit by at least 4x, and eliminate the dependency on paper process to track the work completed for re-energization process. Additionally,  the application reduces the legal liability from adverse events (such as wildfire and storm event) which occur at least 4-5 events per year, and allows field inspectors to report ~300 hazards during a large  events and ~20 hazards during a smaller  event.
