These funds could help facilitate the use of grid enhancing technologies including Advanced Conductors - all of which deliver performance attributes that by far exceed their upfront capital costs. The ACCC Conductor, for example, carries twice the current of conventional ACSR conductors while reducing line losses by ~30% under any load condition. Perfect for upgrading existing lines while making it easy to pay off any borrowed funds. The modern grid is on its way!

Its a drop in the bucket, but should help smaller utilities get some good work done. Permitting challenges still need to be addressed.
