The core business of utilities is the sale of energy, most of the net benefits are concentrated on a handful of clients denominated as Commercial & Industrial (C&I). They represent a small percentage of utility customers, but account for the largest volume of energy consumption.

Probewell Lab | Market Comparaison | C&I | CT-Rated Site TesterRevenue protection is an important part for any business that operates over an extended period of time. When it comes to the commercial and indultrial (C&I) market, it is imperative to maintain peak performance installations at all times. Undetected problems in the C&I market can result in exponential revenue loss for every month that a problem goes unresolved.

The revenue loss equation is quite simple:

Energy consumption x Rate x Error % x Number of months = Revenue Lost

The potential risk for a customer installations range from simple wiring problems to defective installations, faulty equipment and even tampering.

As opposed to damage control, routine inspection or preventive maintenance has two positive impacts,

  • Allowing utilities to detect these issues before they ever impact their ROI
  • Providing the baseline to analyzing future test results.

Addressing quality concerns early in transformer-rated installation by means of preventive maintenance is a good approach to revenue protection.

Boosting customers confidence

As opposed to damage control, implementing a ­quality ­assurance program is a proactive avenue to address ­quality concerns by means of preventive maintenance, thereby lowering the risk factor for utilities and boosting customers confidence.

Preventive maintenance is a smart way to catch failures, such as rusty wires, faulty installations, defective equipment and tampering, before they become real problems.

All of this is made possible and accessible to utilities who opt for the right socket-type site tester.

Complete site diagnostic within 20 minutes (including setup time).

In addition to revenue protection, hense ­having a better ROI, being able to perform inspections in 20 minutes or less, instead of 2 hours, allows electrical companies to invest more in preventive maintenance without affecting there bottom line since the inspection process is six time faster.

This is only possible given that technicians spend less time per test. In reality, the inspection process will be accelerated if the transformer-rated site tester is sufficiently intuitive for the field team.
