KPI Details : Transmission Line Operating & Maintenance Expense per MWh Transmitted

Transmission Line Operating & Maintenance Expense per MWh Transmitted measures the transmission line operating & maintenance-related expense incurred by the company in relation to the total number of megawatt hours (MWh) of energy transmitted over the same period of time. A relatively high value for this metric is typically related to a few common factors, including overstaffing, general inefficiencies within the utility company's operating and maintenance practices (e.g., poor equipment maintenance, high repair rates, etc.) and sub-par maintenance employee training and performance. Excessive values for this metric can lead to poor customer satisfaction (due to any inefficiencies that bleed over from sub-par utility operation and maintenance practices, such as power supply issues) and high attrition rates.

KPI Best Practices : Transmission Line Operating & Maintenance Expense per MWh Transmitted

  • Proactive maintenance measures to minimize the need for full repairs
  • Pre-position the restoration workforce at the first indication of a storm to reduce restoration times
  • Develop a system to monitor substation, power line and transformer efficiency in real time

KPI Calculation Instructions Transmission Line Operating & Maintenance Expense per MWh Transmitted?

Two values are used to calculate this KPI: (1) the transmission line operating & maintenance-related expense incurred, and (2) the total number of megawatt hours (MWh) of energy transmitted over the same period of time. Include the number of megawatt hours (MWh) transmitted from all sources within the utilities company (hydroelectric plants, etc.) in this calculation. Include labor (wages, salaries, commissions, benefits), overhead (occupancy, utilities, supplies, advertising, legal fees, travel costs, etc.), and technology (hardware, software, etc.) costs in this calculation.

KPI Formula :

Transmission Line Operating & Maintenance Expense / Total Number of MWh of Energy Transmitted
