Barbara Cenalmor: SRP Resource Planning
It’s really easy to take electricity for granted. You hit the ON button, and the computers instantly turn on. However, there are a lot of things that go on behind the scenes to get that electricity to you, the main user.
To keep up with the demand and makes sure everybody can turn on their computers, lights and appliances, utilities use resource plans.This presentation explains what resource plans are, why they are important and needed, what resource options are available to utilities, what the trade-offs are between different resources and what considerations are taken into account in the resource strategy.
