Mt. Wheeler Electric Cooperative Chooses PZM To Simplify Their
Substation Inspection Program
February 1, 2020
Mt. Wheeler implements Protection Zone Management TM (PZM) to
simplify and provide consistency to their substation inspection
Frustrated by outdated electric substation inspection programs,
Mt. Wheeler Power had enough of keeping track of paper
inspection forms and entering data on paper first, then another
entry into their excel spreadsheets.
After reviewing PZM and the mobile-enabled inspections, and
instant synchronizing of the inspection records, Mt. Wheeler
wasted no time implementing the program.
Mt. Wheeler inspectors and engineers are excited with the
simplicity of the PZM substation inspection program and the time they save
eliminating the paperwork and double data entry.
Additionally, Mt. Wheeler recognized the benefits of instant
feedback of PZM's mobile app inspection entry and the action based reporting engine. Mt.
Wheeler Electric Cooperative now has a simple and effective
substation inspection program that provides information Mt.
Wheeler can act on to improve their system.
