Join us for this free live webinar presented by Hydro One and Aggreko on June 17th at 2PM eastern

Thursday, June 17th, 2021 | 2PM ET/11AM PT

Keeping customers energized while simultaneously improving grid resiliency is a growing challenge. The North American grid has served for over 100 years. Equipment installed by great grandparents have lived its useful life and are due for upgrades. The challenge is to complete upgrade programs, both at Distribution and Transmission systems, without affecting the customers. In a race to modernize and harden the grid, utilities often make the difficult decision between keeping the customers energized and upgrading the grid.

The audience of this webinar will better understand the benefits of utilizing this innovative approach, including highlights from a recent project that achieved the following results:

  • 61 Million Customer Minutes of Interruption (CMI) mitigated
  • Expediting grid resiliency initiatives by up to 12 months
  • Eliminating 15 mobilizations/demobilizations efforts
