PROBLEM: Power Challenges
A cursory analysis of the weather over the past decade shows increased climate volatility across the earth. Extreme temperatures, superstorms, violent winds, and the weight of snow and ice can all affect your equipment and operations. Heat waves and cold snaps can stress your loads and create costly outages. At the same time, unmeasured responses to the weather can lead to power over-production and costly waste.
Making decisions when the weather wreaks havoc on the power grids isn’t easy. Utility companies are under pressure from their customers, regulatory agencies, politicians, and the media to manage outages quickly, if not prevent them altogether. Weather will always be a factor in your operations and profitability, and if the past decade is any indication, the volatility and extreme weather will most likely continue.
You can’t afford to be blindsided by weather changes that affect your operations and profits. Being ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way is more than an operational goal. It’s a necessity.
