Since 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and electric cooperatives have jointly invested over $215 million in cost-shared Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) projects involving more than 50 co-ops to modernize the electric grid, strengthen cybersecurity, improve interoperability, and collect an unprecedented level of data on smart grid operations. The following reports offer data, analysis and insights on the progress of several cooperative modernization projects across the country.
