Introduction to Electric Utility Network Foundation

Electric Utility Network Foundation can be used to accelerate electric utility network implementations.

It includes a data model that configures ArcGIS Enterprise and the ArcGIS Utility Network to represent electric networks. It deploys foundational services, simplifying the creation of additional web and mobile apps and provides a desktop data editing environment.

Starting with Electric Utility Network Foundation means organizations don't have to spend their time and implementation budget on building custom data models and information products.

Deploy the solution

This ArcGIS solution can be deployed in your ArcGIS organization.

Deploy the solution

See Deploying a solution for more information.


Electric Utility Network Foundation requires the following:

  • ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 or 11.1
  • ArcGIS Pro 2.9 or 3.1(Standard or Advanced)

Information products

Electric Utility Network Foundation includes the following information products:

ItemDescriptionMinimum user type
Electric Utility Network Foundation

A zipped file with an ArcGIS Pro project package with tasks, a configured utility network in a file geodatabase, editor and auditor maps, and an asset package geodatabase

Creator user type with ArcGIS Utility Network user type extension

When you deploy this solution in your ArcGIS organization, you also get an ArcGIS solution item that organizes the key information products and summarizes all the ArcGIS items (applications, forms, projects, maps, feature layers, feature layer views, and so on) included with the solution. The ArcGIS solution item also illustrates any dependencies items have on each other.
