Disco of the Future?

PEPCO has recently filed another application to increase rates for electric distribution service in the District of Columbia. The Grid 2.0 Working Group and the Washington, D.C. Chapter of the Sierra Club sponsored my appearance in the case as an expert witness.

In the case, I had a chance to take issue with the “maintain and harden” approach proposed by the utility, and propose instead the creation of an independently-run project aimed at a strategic investment plan for optimizing the use of grid-supporting resources. Our case is essentially that the mere repetition of the past is not appropriate to the challenges of the future, and that a holistic, systems-based approach is in order.

I would love your feedback!
