Non-Wires Alternatives

Moving Toward the Interactive Grid of the Future

We are committed to considering Non-Wires Alternatives (NWA) solutions to electric capital investments where they are appropriate and cost-effective. NWA solutions utilize Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to postpone certain traditional construction projects needed primarily to correct system overloading conditions and in some cases, system reliability issues.

Strategy

Our strategy for NWA is to build a portfolio of NWA DER projects which are cost-effective for our customers, provide reliable alternatives to traditional capital investment projects, and provide full cost recovery and earnings opportunities for our companies, while we comply with regulatory directives and learn from and work cooperatively with stakeholders.
