If all of our food scraps were composted each year, the drop in greenhouse gases would be like taking two million cars off the road.
If every commuter car in the U.S. carried just one more person, weâd save 600,000 gallons of gas and 12 million pounds of CO2 every day.

Theo Pozzy of Portland General Electric, speaks about the importance of using service management and asset management to transform Smart Meters. Smart Metering means a smaller carbon footprint. It means bigger savings and more frequent usage information. However, the true benefits of Smart Meters can only be seen when using service management and asset management solutions. Both companies partnered with IBM to work as a smarter utility - implementing technology that truly changes the way they operate.
Our Smart Meter project is going very well. We've rolled out 500,000 out of 850,000 meters, and we're ahead of schedule.
CenterPoint Energy has a Smart Metering project going on where we are implementing, installing 2.2 million meters across our service area. We have about 230,000 of those meters installed so far, together with the communications infrastructure and all of the technology and IT systems that go along with that.
One of the benefits that we have already experienced because of the Advance Metering Project is the elimination of over of 50,000 truck rolls to customers’ homes.
We’re on our way to reducing about 8,000 truck rolls a day at the end of the project.
In the future, we won't be needing to send out meter readers to do meter readings and get information for billing. What that does is it reduce cost and allows us to take trucks off the road and reduce our carbon footprint.
In the deregulated market of Texas, the savings associated with those eliminated truck rolls is passed directly to the customer…So we have a reduced cost, but the customer has a reduced cost immediately as a benefit, and that’s passed on directly to them.
With more frequent usage information, we can allow our customers to see their usage patterns, which will allow them to reduce costs and reduce our energy consumption.
In addition to the information that we’re collecting from the meters, we’re also collecting information and data from our communications infrastructure, from our IT infrastructure, and ultimately, from our intelligent grid infrastructure, that will be put into place over the coming years.
All of that information has to be understood and analyzed in a way that can benefit the business.
Due to the volume of data that we have coming in, we have to use a service management process to manage our business. And we’re using an IBM suite of tools in order to make that happen.
Our network of Smart Meters communicates to our headquarters through a number of radio towers. We have more than 40 of these towers and we need to manage the security of those towers and the systems operating at the towers.
PGE has a large number of applications that we use to manage our enterprise. A lot of those applications are big complex systems. It's difficult to completely remove the need for complex systems, but if we can consolidate them into fewer systems, it makes it easier to manage.
The project that we’re implementing is not just an IT project, and it’s not just an operations project, but it’s really truly an integration project between both parts of the business.
We selected IBM as a partner in this process a few years ago, because really we’re in uncharted territory and we needed to partner with a thought leader in the business, who understood both the technology side of the business and the operations part of the business.
In order for us to be a smart utility, we need to be implementing technology changes at the same time as we're keeping the lights on… It's very important for us to be partnering with technology companies like IBM that can help us do that.
Very few times in your career do you get the opportunity to really participate and lead an effort that will change the way a business operates. And this is one of those few opportunities, and that’s just a tremendous opportunity and it really exciting.
IBM’s a great partner in that transformation. We couldn’t do it alone.
