You're telling me high performance power line conductors save water? Really???

Did you know that 40 percent of all clean water consumed in the United States is used to produce electricity and that a modern combined cycle natural gas plant consumes over 45 cubic meters of clean filtered water for every megawatt hour of electricity it produces? Consider this:

The ACCC Conductor has been deployed to more than 800 projects in 52 countries representing more than 100,000 kilometers of ACCC in service today. The line loss reductions are effectively saving over 300 Megawatts of Generation Capacity, which is also conserving water. If you consider that the annual output of this 300 MW plant would exceed 2.6 million megawatt hours of electricity, you’d realize that operating this plant would consume over 117 million cubic meters of water per year. The use of ACCC Conductor is effectively saving enough water to fill 48,000 Olympic size swimming pools every year.

If you’d like to learn more about how the ACCC Conductor can help you take advantage of its numerous benefits, please visit www.ctcglobal.com
