Abstract:

As strong, sudden thunderstorms storms known as 'derechos' ripped across the mid-Atlantic region late last month, leaving millions without power from Ohio to Virginia, many people asked why the utilities in the regions couldn’t restore service faster.
Down in Chattanooga, Tennessee, another unexpected storm blew through town just days after the derechos hit the other states. For EPB Chattanooga, the municipal utility that serves 170,000 customers, it was the first storm where it got to see its smart grid investment work in tandem to cut the amount of power outages at least in half.
