Keeping the lights on is the number one priority for electric utilities and the challenge is greater than ever with everything from weather related outages to cyber threats. Public power utilities maintain a high level of reliability in the industry, and their customers benefit from less time in the dark compared to customers of privately-owned electric utilities.
Public power utilities that demonstrate proficiency in reliability and other key areas are recognized as Reliable Public Power Providers (RP3). Utilities can also subscribe to an online eReliability Tracker service to track, analyze, and benchmark outage data.
The energy of the future needs to be clean, carbon-free and safe. It needs to be scalable, renewable-friendly and ultimately offer a solution for repurposing coal plants. And let’s not forget cost-competitive. NuScale SMR technology meets all of these needs.
