Duke Energys comprehensive grid modernization program, funded in part by a Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG), has reduced outages and improved power quality for Ohio and Carolinas customers. By deploying smart grid technologies and integrating them with upgraded back-end information management systems, Duke has improved operational efficiencies, optimized voltage, automated 'self-healing' disruption response, and expanded smart grid technologies to other service territories using lessons learned.
