Questions and Comments

Question / Comment:

What services do large utilities provide, that smaller utilities cannot? How are utilities adapting to pressures on their business model and engaging with community energy plans in other places?

Response:

Typically, larger utilities can offer modern administrative and customer service options (e billing, SMS alerts etc.). They’re also in a better position to contribute to (and invest in) long-term energy planning and strategic initiatives like e-vehicle charging stations, smart-grid, smart-home and smart-city programs. Here are just a few examples of innovative electricity services and programs available from Enersource and Powerstream.
