14 Jan A rise in power outages — what to do?
Power outages in the United States have been on the rise for over a decade. At this point, the United States “experiences more electric outages than any other developed nation,” according to a report from the non-profit Pew Charitable Trusts. Outages in the United States can cost, on average, anywhere from $18 billion to $33 billion per year.
Also, downtime for utility services can be incredibly costly in terms of lost profits and negatively impact a service’s reputation in the eyes of inconvenienced customers. One way to help prevent outages is to improve grounding using the ConduDisc®: Utility Pole Ground Plate. ConduDisc® doesn’t corrode, enhances equipment performance and ensures personnel safety.
