Central Electric Power Cooperative (CEPC) is a transmission cooperative owned and operated by eight member-owner distribution cooperatives. Collectively they deliver power through a network of 120 substations to a 22,000 square mile area in Central Missouri. These eight electric distribution cooperatives are located in the Central Missouri region as depicted in the map above.
After a careful evaluation of several commercially available off-the-shelf software, CEPC’s substation and IT experts selected SMART as its asset performance software. SMART will be operated by CEPC’s in-house IT department following deployment. They based their decision on SMART’s intuitive interface, ease of configuration, and its rich set of functionalities — including an open license for unlimited number of users and assets across its operation.
CEPC is a member of Touchstone Energy Cooperatives which represents a nationwide alliance of member-owned electric co-ops. Collectively, it delivers power and energy solutions to more than 750 unified local electric cooperatives across 46 states, forming the largest electric utility in the country.
