Abstract:

Electric cooperatives play an important role in the U.S. energy infrastructure, delivering electricity to 44 million consumers across over 70% of the geography of the country every day. Implementing smart grid technology is seen by co-ops as a cost-effective way to improve reliability, streamline the restoration of electricity following outages and improve customer service. At the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), an Arlington, VA-based organization that provides services to more than 900 not-for-profit electric cooperatives nationwide, work is underway to study the impacts of smart grid technologies that will reach more than 700,000 consumers in 12 states.
