Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power Company

Advanced Metering Infrastructure/Meter Data Management System

Abstract

Cheyenne Light, Fuel and Power Company (CLFP) is one of three Black Hills Corporation subsidiaries deploying advanced metering infrastructure (AMI)—the other two are Black Hills/Colorado Electric (BHCOE) and Black Hills Power, Inc. (South Dakota/Wyoming). CLFP’s project includes the deployment of smart meters, communications infrastructure, and a meter data management system (MDMS). The project provides improved outage restoration from the integration of an outage management system with the AMI. Two-way communication allows for off-cycle reads, tamper detection, potential remote connect/disconnect of customer loads and potential future implementation of time-based rate programs.
