WINDSOR, Conn., April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Otter Tail Power Company selected TRC Companies (TRC) to serve as systems integrator for their advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) program. The project covers a broad service territory in northwestern Minnesota, eastern North Dakota, and northeastern South Dakota.
TRC will support program management to integrate the systems while working closely with the software and hardware providers across Otter Tail Power’s AMI, meter data management (MDM) and customer information systems (CIS).
“It’s important to us to partner with companies who understand both industry challenges and technologies as well as our specific needs,” said Al Koeckeritz, Otter Tail Power’s Manager of Advanced Concepts and Energy Management and Control. “TRC offers a unique set of utility domain and technology expertise through their prior AMI and CIS work.”

technology and customer-focused goals,” said Craig Cavanaugh, President of Digital Solutions at TRC. “We have deep utility industry expertise and hands-on experience with integrating and implementing AMI and CIS technologies. We knew we could dive right into the project and start providing value with very little ramp-up time, so it was a great fit for both parties.”
