Bringing Flexibility and Accuracy to Billing

You need accurate data – whether it’s time-of-use or usage demand – for accurate, seamless customer billing. The Trilliant Communications Platform solution adds the functionality our utility customers need to their residential electric meters, such as the ability to support two channels of load profiling.  And for advanced and C&I meters,  load profiling is only limited by the specific meter’s native capabilities.

Once  data has been gathered, Trilliant’s UnitySuite Software uses it to calculate use and demand for customer billing. The flexibility of our communications platform solutions let our utility customers establish billing according to their needs, whether it’s TOU/demand billing natively in the meter, or sending the data to be processed by an MDM system.

Usage Profiling / Time-of-Use Billing

The SecureMesh solution adds more value to residential electric meters by providing advanced functionality, including the ability to support two channels of load profiling.  Load profile intervals can be programmed between 1 and 255 minutes, although typical values are 15 or 60 minutes.  Trilliant’s UnitySuite Software can then utilize load profile data to calculate Time-of-Use or demand as needed for customer billing.

Load profiling for advanced and C&I meters is only limited by the specific meter’s native capabilities.  All available channels, as configured in the meter, are available for automatic scheduled reporting to the UnitySuite Software.  The flexibility of Trilliant’s SecureMesh solution allows a utility to establish TOU or demand billing natively in the meter or allows the reported data to be processed by an MDM system.
