Grid-Connected, Customer-Owned Substations

Customer-Owner Substations are unique and different from utility-owned substations. Some of the topics will include upfront load estimation, interconnection/relaying, substation design, and generation. Additionally, we will explore these differences in context of some of our recent substation projects across the nation.
