About United Power

United Power is one of AiDash’s customers. They are a member-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperative, delivering electricity to homes, farms, and businesses throughout Colorado’s northern front range.

The cooperative is one of the fastest-growing electric cooperatives in the nation, and in June joined the elite ranks of cooperatives serving more than 100,000 meters. The 900 square mile service territory extends from the mountains of Coal Creek and Golden Gate Canyon, along the I-25 corridor and Carbon Valley region, to the farmlands of Brighton, Hudson and Keenesburg.

IVMS: bringing co-ops into the future

AiDash IVMS combines high-resolution, multispectral satellite images with on-ground reports to provide increased visibility on the overgrowth of vegetation around transmission and distribution grids. AiDash’s platform pulls critical operations and maintenance data points into one centralized system. Its proprietary AI models identify and leverage crucial data points such as tree growth rates, historic weather data, and the location of transmission and distribution lines to help utilities optimize their vegetation management programs.

“It’s important for the utility industry to embrace change. Leveraging satellite technology, AI, and data to optimize our vegetation management program, save money, and strengthen our wildfire mitigation plans with AiDash’s platform is all part of United Power’s plan to look toward the future. It’s one more key point to stay ahead of the game. And it’s important for utilities, regardless of their size, to be able to embrace technology,” said Woodings.
