Who We Serve - Investor Owned Utilities

The convergence of new market forces and challenges has propelled IOUs into an era of unprecedented change. Together, aging infrastructure and workforce, rising resource costs, technology options and unverified risk/reward options have created a new landscape for distribution service.

For the first time IOUs face a dynamic environment where technologies, requirements, and business processes are continually changing.

To deal with these challenges while at the same time enhancing reliability and service levels to consumers, IOUs must evaluate their operating processes and business strategies. Through the integration of enabling smart grid technologies and programs, IOUs have the opportunity to add value to their business structures while still meeting the varied demands of consumers and other stakeholders.
