Facts About America's Power Grid

Facts About America's Power Grid A Presentation Of Current Solutions PC More than 450,000 miles of high-voltage transmission lines keep United States bright. The complex network is based on 3 major steps including power plants where the journey of electricity begins and then transferred into transformers to consumers (you). 1st Commercial Power Grid Thomas Edison in 1882 introduced the 1st commercial power grid by the name of "The Pearl Street Station" in lower Manhattan. One of the first electricity consumers of the Pearl Street Station were the offices of "The New York Times". Ch-Noar Jork Cimes The whole electrical infrastructure or electric grid of America is based on 3 smaller grids called interconnections.

The 2009 "Recovery Act" made the department invest $4.5 billion to YVI D 2007 modernize and make the nation's electrical grids more reliable. Electric grids in America needs to be both reliable and resilient in order to maintain shorter power interruptions and prepared to recover from severe weather damages. There are many causes that result into power outages, but severe weather is ranked number 1 among all those causes. The economy of United States is hit by $18 and $33 billion every year due to power outages. The commonly faced issues due to electrical outage includes damage to grid infrastructure, lost output and wages, and delayed production. Another major development towards electrical reliability and resiliency is moving towards microgrid technology. Microgrids operate through the integration of distributed energy resources such as backup generators and solar panels. The most highlighting feature of microgrids is the ability of operating autonomously during extreme weather events though its generally connected to traditional electrical grid in normal conditions. More than $100 million of investment has been made the by the Department of Energy to improve a resilient and reliable grid infrastructure to survive and prevent cyber incident. Not only the department of energy contributes for cyber security of America's power grid but it is also secured by the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and many other departments.
