The discussion will focus on how regulation for US utilities can improve grid reliability and resiliency, lower costs for consumers and ultimately deliver the energy transition.
Smart Wires leaders are excited to participate in a day of discussions about Grid Enhancing Technology (GET) and policies shaping the energy industry.
