Making the Grade: Energy

Posted by Infra on Friday, March 17th, 2017
Making the Grade: Energy

In the ASCE 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, energy received a grade of D+. Most electric transmission and distribution lines were constructed in the 1950s and 1960s with a 50-year life expectancy, and the lower 48 states’ power grid is at full capacity. Without greater attention to aging equipment, as well as addressing storm and climate impacts, Americans will likely experience longer and more frequent power interruptions – already reportedly in excess of 3,500 per year.
