Siemens DRMS provides WVPA the ability to shed load across multiple distribution systems utilizing several different demand response programs, verify load shed, calculate baselines, and automate customer billing and settlement without cumbersome processes that previously required multiple spreadsheets for calculation.

Siemens also implemented eMeter EnergyIP meter data management system (MDMS) platform for WVPA in 2011.

The Siemens DRMS platform allows WVPA to utilize the Advanced Metering Infrastructure networks deployed at their Member distribution cooperatives with eMeter EnergyIP to create a solution that uses bi-directional communication for real-time load reductions and timely measurement and verification of demand response events.
