PCI Energy Solutions Empowers Multiple Customers

for Their Optimized Participation in the SPP WEIS

NORMAN, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PCI Energy Solutions, the leading provider of enterprise software solutions, announced its continued collaboration and advances with clients in the Southwest Power Pool’s (SPP’s) Western Energy Imbalance Service (WEIS). Three clients have recently joined WEIS by leveraging multiple PCI applications for their optimized participation in the energy imbalance market.


“We’re thrilled to have supported our valued clients, the Platte River Power Authority, Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, and Xcel Energy, in their successful entry into SPP WEIS,” said Shailesh Mishra, vice president of Commercial and Customer Success at PCI Energy Solutions.

“As a reliable partner, PCI is committed to delivering innovative solutions and exceptional customer service. Our team’s dedication to customer success and our robust platform have allowed us to provide our clients with the services they need to optimize their energy resources and navigate the upcoming advances in the various Western energy markets, including the Western Resource Adequacy Program (WRAP) and the RTO+.”

The WEIS is designed to balance electricity supply and demand on a frequent and near-instantaneous basis across multiple entities within the Western Interconnection. By going live, these customers are actively engaging in the energy market, leveraging the system’s capabilities to optimize their energy resources, manage imbalances, and potentially benefit from cost savings and improved grid reliability.

When creating the WEIS, SPP used existing structures in the Western region and their experience from running their own energy trading system. This builds on their current Integrated Marketplace, which includes services like planning ahead for energy needs and more.

Meanwhile, PCI Energy Solutions continues to empower energy organizations with its fit-for-purpose and secure-cloud software platform, enabling seamless market participation and supporting clients in achieving their operational and commercial objectives. With a focus on delivering value and driving customer success, PCI remains dedicated to assisting its clients in maximizing their potential in the evolving energy landscape.
