Great River Energy and Other Cooperatives Join Grid Stability Research Project

Great River Energy and other cooperatives in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) are researching ways to increase grid flexibility in order to integrate more intermittent distributed renewable energy resources. NRECA plans to create a water heater controller and a smart circuit breaker capable of controlling plug-in appliances with the hope of making load management an inherent part of grid operations and learning how autonomous intelligent technologies can be deployed to respond quickly and maintain power quality and reliability.
