Georgia Power turned to Clearion to develop two, unique workflows that identify, track and route freshly cut vegetation from the utility’s tree trimming program in order to improve the diets of “browsers” and giant pandas at Zoo Atlanta.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia Power serves 2.4 million electricity customers in the state of Georgia. Georgia Power conducts extensive vegetation management along its transmission and distribution lines. In 2020, the utility and Clearion codeveloped an automated workflow to connect vegetation management crews with community organizations that need mulch.
Four major utilities deploy technology in different ways for their vegetation management programs.
WEC Energy Group implemented an Esri technology-based vegetation work management solution built around office and field applications from Esri partner Clearion. They achieved a digital transformation of the entire vegetation management business program, eliminating overhead costs and creating an overall more efficient system.
When New Zealand entered Alert Level 4 lockdown at short notice in March this year, WEL Networks’ vegetation management team was well-positioned, having already gone digital in January 2020.
We Energies and Wisconsin Public Service (WPS), part of the WEC Energy Group, provide electricity and natural gas to more than 3 million Wisconsin customers. Routine maintenance includes making certain that 31,450 miles of power lines have clear space around overhead lines.
