There are moments when we find ourselves totally dumbfounded
by the idea of having green cars or technology. Honestly, what it primarily
means is green means helping the environment with good alternatives. I happen
to see a Mercury commercial where the host or the endorser stated that the car
model was the “first green vehicle of the year”. As dumbfounded as I was
before, I turned to my friend and told her “does that mean that no manufacturer
has ever used a green paint before?” I know I was stupid, but let me redeem
This happened before the world was into the concept of using
greener alternatives to save planet earth. Until recently, people has started
the green movement to save our planet from greenhouse gases, etc. Before I
thought that going green means planting more trees and cleaning up &
segregating our trashes. Include in my concept of “green” movement before the
ideas of recycling, having alternative renewable energy, and hybrid vehicles.
Green movement is not just a color but it is a lifestyle.
I am more glad to tell you that now that I am more
knowledgeable about these things, and Green movement was more alive and well
compared before. Green movement is not just about rehabilitating its image to
appeal younger generations, but we are also doing this for the future
generations to come.
In finding new ways to create a more sustainable and
renewable energy sources without the depletion of current natural reserves is a
very important and crucial aspect & part of our planet in today’s generation.
Saving the planet is not all about buying the proper energy saving equipment or
getting the latest technology innovation or having the right appliances. It
starts with utilizing and using the things that you already have.
There are enclosure manufacturing companies that produces
only plastic enclosures but they are tailor-fitted to be used for a wide
variety of uses. Look into the company’s capability of using greener
alternatives to conserve resources and save planet earth. How does a plastic
enclosure serve as a useful equipment in searching for other alternatives to
energy? Throughout the process of researching and discovering whether a company
offers greener alternatives to their plastic enclosure, do not hesitate to send
them a question or contact them directly.
All it takes is clear communication on what you what to
achieve and how you will achieve it.
The main purpose of a Grid Assurance is it serves as a
solution that helps in dividing the cost across several utilities. The shared
inventory approach in achieving cost-efficiency can give people savings in
terms of protection, warehousing, purchasing, and it also includes the
maintenance cost that comes with possible parts replacements of the equipment.
It makes the cost more affordable compared before to enable companies to
acquire immediate access for much larger scale equipment that is on hand and on
Once a major disastrous event happens, a company’s tendency
is to mainly focus on stabilizing the operations quicker to avoid loss of
profit. This should be done as fast as possible. With this in mind, the Grid
Assurance effectively works if each of the subscriber do logistics plans for
their equipment before a disaster occurs. The planning should make sure that
the equipment that are being used and delivered should be delivered before the
predicted event. In determining when the critical replacement will happen for
the equipment should come up gives the companies an extra confidence in making
sure that the grid assurance is present to deliver the customers energy supply
even after a disaster happens.
In addition to this, another pressing challenge comes with
the regulatory approval. It is widely recognized that grid utility companies
are now being a bit hesitant in coming up with decisions about major investments
because these decisions should be backed up by a regulatory assurance that the
costs that are incurred should be recouped in form of rates.
With this in mind, Gird Assurance is not taking initiative
and being proactive because it has recently received two affirmative orders
coming from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) that gives the
regulatory clarification on the issues that can be related to prudency,
compliance, ratemaking and other affiliated pricing transmissions. This is
related to the owing entities that participates in the Grid Assurance project.
While the Grid Assurance is not currently FERC regulated,
the different charges that comes with this such as: cost-based subscription
fees akin to the FERC regulated transmission formula rates. The different costs
that comes with subscription fees together with the FERC orders should be able
to facilitate the members’ different abilities in recovering the expenses that
comes with Grid Assurance subscription.
While not FERC regulated, Grid Assurance charges cost-based
subscription fees, like FERC-regulated transmission formula rates. These
cost-based subscription fees along with the FERC orders will facilitate
members’ ability to recover their Grid Assurance subscription expenses.
With this in mind, Grid Assurance was originally formed to
give answers because of the needs that arises in the electrical industry: this
need comes in the restoration of the electrical grid that should quickly follow
other HILF events. This will happen by increasing the critical transmission
equipment that comes with on-shore and on-hand inventory. Different companies
contribute to the utilities’ ability to restore the energy delivery back
properly, giving help to protect the nations’ consumers and the communities
from the possible devastating effects potential calamities might bring. This
will help in maintaining the way of life of the people and the economical
balance in the country.
