A visit to Southern California Edison’s (SCE) SmartConnect™ Field Test and Meter Testing facility in Westminster is being organized for participants in Smart Metering West Coast.

The tour will include the DCA (Data Center Aggregator) testing rooms, the MSO (Meter Services Organization) and Engineering (Meter Engineering) lab, as well as a drive through Long Beach to show an area where field testing is currently taking place.

The three key areas you will experience on the field visit are:

  • Meter shop – a production environment where SCE performs acceptance testing of meters before they are deployed to the field.
  • Field training area - a controlled environment used to simulate field condition to train field meter personnel.
  • Meter lab – a lab environment where SCE performs meter product evaluation testing.

The 2nd Smart Metering West Coast takes place in Los Angeles, CA, from August 20-22, 2007.

Participation in this site visit is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
