Grid Modernization Strategies That Develop Reliability and Resilience

Prepare to meet the increasing reliability, resiliency and efficiency demands for electrical distribution systems. At Ulteig, we understand that the most effective grid modernization strategy is unique to each utility. Our team of grid modernization experts will work with you to develop unique solutions to achieve your strategic goals. We will partner with you to create and implement a well-designed grid modernization plan with long-lasting benefits.

Grid modernization is a broad term that generally refers to the process of making electric systems more resilient, efficient, reliable and optimized for Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and load side technologies. Efforts can range from distribution system hardening of traditional poles and wire systems, through asset replacements, to updating obsolete protection systems with the newest technology, (i.e. FLISR automatically locating a fault, isolating it, and restoring service to the unaffected parts of the system).
