Understanding the Electric Business (#2610)
1-3/4 Skill Builder Credits

The electric utility industry is an evolving high-tech system that must be designed and engineered to meet regulatory and consumer standards for reliability, quality, and safety. This requires an appropriate investment on a planned and ongoing basis. This course provides directors with an understanding of the key components of the electric utility industry.

Key topics:
  • The basic functions and cost components of generation, transmission, and distribution
  • Current and emerging technologies that are impacting utility operations and policies
  • Issues related to distributed generation that the board may need to address
  • How environmental issues and national policies impact the cooperative
  • The board’s role to ensure a safe working environment
