ABILENE, Texas – March 4, 2013 — Milsoft Utility Solutions, Inc., Natchez Trace Electric Power Association (NTEPA) in Houston, Mississippi, has chosen Milsoft Geographic Information System (GIS) and Milsoft Field Engineering (FE).
Natchez Trace EPA is collecting and organizing the data necessary to model and analyze its electrical distribution system and manage its assets so as to be able to plan, engineer and operate as reliably, economically and efficiently as possible. “As the demands on our electric distribution system become not only greater but more complex, we must have an accurate, detailed computer model and facilities data base,” said System Engineer Shawn Edmondson, “Milsoft FE and GIS will enable us to develop and maintain both.”
Milsoft GIS is used by 150 electric utilities for electric utility mapping and asset data management. The powerful yet easy to use software is fully integrated with ESRI GIS tools. It is unique in its capability to create and maintain a detailed electric network circuit model. Milsoft Field Engineering enables rapid, efficient collection and utilization of data from field design of system additions and improvements. Milsoft GIS and Milsoft FE together provide the data capture, management and display capabilities that a utility needs to maximize the many benefits of using GIS.
About Natchez Trace Electric Power Association
Natchez Trace EPA is a member owned electric distribution cooperative with headquarters in Houston, Mississippi, and district offices in Calhoun City and Eupora. The cooperative’s name came from the historic 440 mile trail between Houston, Mississippi, and Nashville, Tennessee, used for centuries by Native Americans, then by early European and American explorers. An appropriate name for a utility founded in 1939 to create a path to the benefits of electric power and energy which now provides electric service to more than 15,823 members in portions of Calhoun, Chickasaw, Clay, Grenada, Pontotoc, Webster, and Yalobusha counties in north central Mississippi.
