Driving Network Efficiency and Fraud Detection Efforts


In 2014, Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE), a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation, launched C3 IoT applications across all two million sensors and devices in its service territory. BGE is leveraging C3 AMI Operations™ to optimize the deployment and ongoing health of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network and C3 Revenue Protection™ to identify and reduce unbilled energy usage. BGE expects these applications to deliver an annual economic benefit of $20 million to BGE and its customers.

C3 IoT delivered the solutions on schedule, in six months from project kick-off to launch. The applications are built on the C3 IoT Platform and run on the AWS Cloud. Deployment involved developing 42 integrations to 12 source systems. C3 IoT loaded two years of historical BGE data in a 10 terabyte federated cloud image and configured more than 140 complex analytics and predictive algorithms to match BGE’s requirements and available data. Since deployment, the solutions have met or exceeded all business performance targets. In the first six months, C3 Revenue Protection identified non-technical loss cases generating $2.8 million in economic benefit from verified fraud cases. During the same timeframe, C3 AMI Operations identified sensor health issues with a 99% accuracy rate.
