x. Electric Utilities
I have written and edited articles about the power industry for over five years. In every issue of Electricity Today Magazine, I wrote an editorial on a myriad of issues (for example, the phase out of coal and Smart Grid privacy). I also wrote feature articles for publication. Here are some samples for your review.
OPENING THE DOOR TO GRID MODERNIZATION
Modernizing the power grid is the proposed answer to North America’s aging electricity infrastructure problem. Some visualize grid modernization as a combined sector/government effort to replace aging infrastructure with new up-to-date equipment. However, realizing this vision is a challenge.

If the power industry is serious about protecting the environment and reducing carbon emissions, then regulators and utilities need to focus on closing coal-fired power plants.

Copper theft has caused governments, utilities, and power sector organizations to take notice. The Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) details just how damaging copper theft has become to the power industry and its customers.

Ontario’s Liberal government is cutting power bills by 10 percent, a discount that could result in an average annual savings of $150 per household.
