Energy Experts Develop First-of-Its-Kind Perfect Power Seal of Approval Program to Drive Innovation, Transformation in Electricity Industry
CHICAGO, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Galvin Electricity Initiative today introduced the Perfect Power Seal of Approval™ (PPSoA), a program to drive innovation in the electric power industry by embracing consumer needs. The program, modeled after the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification for buildings, will evaluate and recognize the nation’s top-performing smart microgrid projects in key performance categories.
“The Perfect Power Seal of Approval program establishes much-needed metrics that can empower consumers, businesses, communities and regulators to demand better performance from the power system,” said John Kelly, deputy director of the Galvin Electricity Initiative. “Today’s monopoly-driven business model does not hold participants accountable for quality in electricity service. The PPSoA program shines a bright light on this issue, shifting the focus from technology for technology’s sake to measurable system performance outcomes. By providing a standard set of consumer-focused criteria, we aim to inspire continuous improvement in smart grid projects, as those projects innovate to meet the Seal of Approval criteria over time.”
