Plumas-Sierra was looking to modernize their inspection program and PZM provided the solution. Paperless electrical substation inspections, easy compliance reports, and deficiency tracking were three features that sold Plumas-Sierra on the PZM electrical inspection software.

Based in California, Plumas-Sierra has CA state regulatory requirements that are labor intensive to organize and track. PZM generates inspection reports with just a couple of clicks.

The inspectors are excited to eliminate their existing paper-based inspections and track their deficiencies and momentary outage trends. Plumas-Sierra Rural Cooperative now has a simple and effective substation inspection program that provides information Plumas-Sierra can act on to improve their system.
