The amount of energy lost due to inefficient transmission and distribution equipment - and the impact this is having on the environment - is staggering. Please check out this informative article. Glad the ACCC Conductor technology is helping reduce transmission line losses by 30% or more, worldwide.

Don't know why more politicians aren't harnesses this obvious opportunity for economic stimulus spending, job creating, manufacturing demand creation, and greening of the grid.

Matt, I agree. Considering that high-performance ACCC Conductors can double the capacity of existing transmission lines to alleviate congestion (and reduce the cost of delivered power); allow the integration of more renewable energy; improve grid reliability and resilience; support economic development; accommodate load growth and a changing generation landscape; free-up generation capacity that is otherwise wasted; reduce operating and life-cycle costs; increase profitability; AND reduce GHG emissions, a lack of investment in modern transmission technologies is a wasted opportunity.
