SEPA and PLMA Seek Non-Wires Alternative Projects

April 2, 2018 — The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and the Peak Load Management Alliance (PLMA), with funding from E4TheFuture, have launched an industry-wide call for nominations to compile knowledge and experiences of those working on non-wire alternatives (NWA) projects.

The need to replace aging electric grid infrastructure amidst rapidly evolving utility roles, customer demands and improved distributed energy resource technology is clear. Lower cost, higher consumer and environmental benefit solutions result from NWA.

“The possibility for utilities to meet changing system needs without traditional transmission and distribution upgrades opens up myriad options for the future grid,” said Steve Cowell, President, E4TheFuture.
