PROBLEM

Xcel Energy is a public utility supplying energy to more than 3 million customers in eight states, including Colorado. With over 17 million miles of transmission lines in active use, maintaining and upgrading the system is an ongoing challenge.

SOLUTION
Utilizing Public Service Company maps and drawings compiled over years of fieldwork, Digital Data Services, Inc. digitized and attributed the drawings to scale and created a final product in AutoCAD that meets the needs of engineers for fast, reliable cartographic data accessible from anywhere.

BENEFIT
DDS delivered a tool that enables Xcel engineers to concentrate on fixing transmission problems vs. locating them, resulting in savings of energy, money, and time due to downed power lines.
