Community meetings, direct mailings, and communication campaigns are being used to educate customers on the benefits including web site presentment through My Account and on dynamic pricing programs. Specific AMI Work Packages include: Automated Deployment System Integration: Includes the integration of Pepco’s existing systems with the meter installation contractor’s (Scope Services) work order management system and the mesh network provider’s (SSN) UtilityIQ TM (UIQ) head end system to support the procurement, receipt, installation and provisioning of communication network equipment and AMI endpoints. This project enables the Field Deployment Project. Field Deployment of AMI Components: Includes the design and physical installation of SSN Radio Frequency (RF) mesh communication network and the exchange of all existing electric meters with new “smart” electric meters. Customer Benefits System Integration: Includes four work streams – Meter-to-Bill, Web Presentment, AMI Portal and Off-Cycle Billing, and Outage Detection with Customer Notification. This includes implementation of the Meter Data Management System (MDM) for use in creating and validating billing determinants that enable Dynamic Pricing rate designs such as Critical Peak Rebate. This also includes integration of the Meter Data Management System with Pepco’s Customer Billing System.
