NEMA Offers Guidelines for Reducing Impact of Power Outages


10/26/2012 2:00 PM
In anticipation of the significant storm that is expected to affect the electrical grid in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S., the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) offers complimentary copies of After the Storm—Strategies for reducing the impact of power outages through a stronger, smarter electric grid.
 
In addition to suggestions for building a more resilient electrical grid, the booklet offers recommendations on what public officials can do to promote a stronger grid, explanations of the technology involved, and tips to minimize risks associated with downed power lines.
 
Additional information about electrical hazards associated with submerged electrical appliances, portable generators, and other dangers caused by severe storms and floods is available from NEMA and the Electrical Safety Foundation International.
 

NEMA is the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers, founded in 1926 and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Its member companies manufacture a diverse set of products including power transmission and distribution equipment, lighting systems, factory automation and control systems, and medical diagnostic imaging systems. Worldwide annual sales of NEMA-scope products exceed $120 billion.
