DOE announces initiative to transform Nation’s electric sector

Department of Energy Secretary Steve Chu released a memo, March 16, outlining a plan to ensure that the Nation’s four Power Marketing Administrations can assume an increased leadership role in modernizing the grid to meet 21st century needs.

More information about the PMA’s new strategies can be found on DOE’s blog.

We at Western are encouraged by DOE’s plans and support the department’s objectives. We are looking forward to the initiative and the new ways it will allow us to achieve our mission.
