SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AiDash will speak on the importance of critical data insights for utilities of all sizes at Utility Analytics Institute’s UA Week conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference takes place Oct. 1315, 2021.
AiDash’s senior manager of customer success, Jordan Jozak, will be joined by United Power’s vegetation management and construction project specialist, Holly Woodings. They will deliver a talk entitled “AiDash: Transforming United Power's Vegetation Management with Satellite Technology,” on Friday, October 15, at 9:45 AM (CT). In this session, they will discuss how United Power has used AiDash Intelligent Vegetation Management System (IVMS) to better plan their vegetation management (VM) activities, increase reliability and decrease VM costs.
AiDash IVMS combines high-resolution, multispectral satellite images with on-ground reports to provide increased visibility on the overgrowth of vegetation around transmission and distribution grids. AiDash’s platform pulls critical operations and maintenance data points into one centralized system. Its proprietary AI models identify and leverage crucial data points such as tree growth rates, historic weather data, and the location of transmission and distribution lines to help utilities optimize their vegetation management programs.
“It’s important for the utility industry to embrace change. Leveraging satellite technology, AI, and data to optimize our vegetation management program, save money, and strengthen our wildfire mitigation plans with AiDash’s platform is all part of United Power’s plan to look toward the future. It’s one more key point to stay ahead of the game. And it’s important for utilities, regardless of their size, to be able to embrace technology,” said Woodings.
