Daily, electricity operators are replacing thousands of failed distribution transformers. While the related costs and negative outage impacts may be unnecessary, the root cause is actually the real, serious issue.
As the US notably experienced in 2017, grid asset failures can lead to devastating fires, billions of dollars in damage, personal injury, and loss of life. Alarmingly, this type of catastrophic risk and costly impact is just getting started within our power grids. Recent focus has been on expanding ‘green efforts’, lowering electricity bills, and reducing Greenhouse Gas emissions. In turn, we have witnessed an accelerated adoption of Rooftop Solar, and Electric Vehicles.
Simultaneously, we have rapidly expanding legalized marijuana growth and increasing power theft (e.g., US = $6 to $9 Billion / YEAR).
