Grid Enhancements
The energy grid efficiently delivers safe and reliable energy so you always have the power you need. Protecting the grid is our top priority, and every day EEI’s member companies are working to improve grid security, reliability, and resiliency.
 
In 2017, EEI’s member companies are projected to invest $57.2 billion to enhance the energy grid and to further support our grid security efforts.
 
The continued deployment of digital smart meters—with more than 70 million installed in 60% of all U.S. households to date—is one key building block of a more dynamic and more secure grid. Investments that hasten the integration of new technologies—such as small-scale wind and solar, energy storage, microgrids, and other devices in our homes and businesses—are another.
