“We can have all the best technology in the world, but it we don’t deploy it in a a way that's of benefit to the customer… (it) isn’t going to get us anywhere.”
“We have a real opportunity here to really integrate kind of how the grid is planned, how it's operated, and how it's secured as we go through this reinvention process.”
“We can optimize each individual home's footprint and therefore optimize the grid, optimize the demand curve for the whole state and reduce the peak which prevents the need to build replacement power plants for the coal plants that we're closing.”
“Our longer-term strategy is to build a resilient grid that can provide more and more energy that fuels the economy and the society that we live in.”
