挑战

Horizon Power 一直在使用传统的基于卡的预付费电表来帮助偏远社区的客户管理电费并避免累积债务。该解决方案一直运行良好,直到已安装的预付费电表停止生产。 Horizon Power 还必须响应修订后的住宅客户供电监管行为准则,该准则对预付款的规定做出了重大改变。

主要变化包括对断开连接时间的限制,以及要求能够向客户提供其总能源消耗的数据,以及他们过去两年的平均每日消耗和费用。

客户
关于客户

Horizon Power是一家专注于商业的州政府所有的电力公司,为西澳大利亚州提供电力供应。它负责为住宅、工业和商业客户发电、采购、分配和零售电力,并在其服务区域内开发资源。

Horizon Power 于 2006 年在西澳大利亚电力部门改革期间成立。他们在皮尔巴拉、金伯利、加斯科因/中西部和西澳大利亚南部金矿-埃斯佩兰斯地区开展业务。 Horizon Power 的总部位于 Karratha,在 Broome、Kununurra、Carnarvon、Esperance 和 Port Hedland 设有区域办事处,行政支持由珀斯提供。

解决方案
  • Horizon Power 还选择了总部位于美国的智能预付费计费解决方案公司 SmartGridCIS 与 Horizon 现有的 CIS 一起部署,以提供管理预付费客户帐户所需的所有功能。
  • Horizon Power 还与电表供应商 Landis+Gyr 密切合作,开发新的电表固件,以提供所需的预付费功能。
  • 该固件使 Horizon Power 能够通过 Itron 电表网络将电表从预付费转换为后付费计费。这意味着如果客户要求在预付款和后付款计费之间切换,Horizon Power 不再需要亲自到现场重新编程电表,这是他们有权做的。

运营影响
  • The deployment of the advanced metering solution has significantly improved Horizon Power's operational efficiency. The new meters enable customers to choose prepayment or credit metering and to switch between the two solutions as they desire. This flexibility has not only improved customer satisfaction but also helped Horizon Power manage customer debt and keep customers connected. The success of the pilot program in the initial communities has paved the way for a broader rollout, with Horizon Power now in the process of replacing all the old prepayment meters in its service area as it deploys the AMI solution. The company is also exploring ways of providing the option of prepayment billing to other customer segments in the future.
数量效益
  • Horizon Power has now deployed approximately 1,000 advanced prepayment meters to over thirty Aboriginal communities across Western Australia.
  • The new prepayment solution was piloted in 45 houses in one community, then seven communities in one area.
  • The prepayment solution has proven to be highly desirable, being selected by more than 90 percent of customers in the communities where it’s available.
