TRC and Snohomish County PUD, Transforming Utility Operations with Managed Software as a Service for Meter Data Management

August 25, 2023

Enabling a new era of flexibility, scalability, and streamlined operations

WINDSOR, Conn.– Snohomish County Public Utility District (Snohomish PUD), the second largest publicly owned utility in Washington state, and TRC Companies, Inc. (TRC) successfully implemented the Meter Data Management System (MDMS) using Managed Software as a Service (MSaaS) that will eventually be used for approximately 365,000 electric meters and 23,000 water meters.

Snohomish PUD selected TRC in September 2021 to implement, integrate and deliver its MDMS on the Siemens EnergyIP® solution as a part of its Connect Up program.

Snohomish PUD selected TRC Managed Software as a Service (MSaaS), making it the first North American utility to use a TRC cloud-based delivery model for MDMS. MSaaS gives Snohomish PUD all the benefits of MDMS along with advanced security, data privacy and quick implementation, without having to make additional IT investments.

TRC implemented the Siemens EnergyIP® product, managed the integration, and will continue the day-to-day operations management for the MDMS, including software updates and data security as well as cloud services.

“TRC has been a strong implementation partner and we’re excited to continue to partner with TRC to help manage the complexity that comes with maintaining and monitoring an enterprise-level Meter Data Management System,” said Adam Peretti, PUD Manager AMI Technologies and Jason Bruss, PUD Manager ITS Application. “Leveraging TRC’s expertise enables the District to extend beyond just AMI billing and provide many of the benefits that come with a next generation AMI system.”

Headquartered in Everett, Wash., Snohomish PUD is implementing its Connect Up program to give customers more control over their energy usage through detailed energy and water usage, flexible billing, and same-day meter service all while reducing carbon emissions with fewer PUD vehicles on the road.

“TRC partnered closely with Snohomish PUD throughout the project, leveraging our deep industry experience in advanced metering to implement MDMS in the cloud,” said Craig Cavanaugh, President of TRC’s Intelligent Grid Solutions Sector. “By executing this next generation smart metering platform, Snohomish PUD is improving the customer experience, saving money, and reducing their carbon footprint.”
