Today, we have a complex patchwork system of regional and local power plants, power lines, and transformers that have widely varying ages, conditions, and capacities.

“Nationally, 70% of transmission lines and power transformers are 25 years or older, while 60% of circuit breakers are more than 30 years old, as of the end of 2010.”

Making matters worse, the investment gap for T&D is expected to grow and at a faster pace. There is increased pressure on the grid for operational reliability.

Reliable electricity is essential for the functioning of many aspects of household and economic activity today. As the nation moves toward increasingly sophisticated use of information technology, computerized controls, and sensitive electronics, the need for electricity reliability becomes even greater. For the entire system to function, generation facilities need to meet load demand, transmission lines must be able to transport electricity from generation plants to local distribution equipment, and the decentralized distribution network must be in good repair to ensure reliable final delivery.

Deficiencies in any one of these three elements of electrical infrastructure can affect our nation’s future economic growth and standard of living.” (ASCE’s Failure to Act – The Economic Impact of Current Investment Trends in Electricity Infrastructure, copyright 2011.)
