Spot Networks and APS

Date: Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Location: SRP Information Services Building (ISB), 1600 N Priest Dr, Tempe, AZ 85281

Speaker: Bill West, APS

Topic: "Spot Networks and APS"

Bill West will describe the key differences between grid and spot networks. Most utilities connect transformers to a grid, which delivers power to a specific location. APS formerly employed small grids to serve its customers, but has earned a national reputation for reliability based largely on its use of spot networks. A significant amount of the credit goes to our speaker.
