The Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative (NOVEC) provides power to 144,000 customers. To keep electric costs down and to reliably serve customers, NOVEC needs to know how much power to buy, transmit and deliver for its consumers. To master these challenges NOVEC chose SAS. NOVEC deployed SAS Analytics Pro, SAS Enterprise Guide and SAS/ETS. SAS Analytics provide NOVEC with a broad array of econometric and time series forecasting techniques, along with point-and-click interfaces that can grow with the utility.
