Generation is really the lifeblood of the utility sector, as producing reliable and affordable power to ensure the lights will turn on whenever customers flip the switch is the basis of everything we’re doing in this community. And, of course, it’s not just about making sure the lights can turn on, but all the daily necessities that require that stable power source to ensure health, safety, and productivity are allowable.
That essential function of the generation sector of utilities isn’t going away any time soon, but the way it looks certainly is changing. Central generation sources are increasingly being supplemented or even replaced with small-scale distributed sources. Coal plants are shutting down in favor of cleaner power plants and generation sources. And customers are even getting in on the game as efficiency, demand-response, and on-site generation are becoming recognized as just as critical assets as traditional generation sources.
