EPB gave a demonstration on Intelli-Rupters are large, automated switches linked with fiber optics, that are able to prevent power outages by 60%.
EPB wanted to demonstrate how these switches work, how they sound and how they actually reduce those outages.
The Intelli-Rupters are not only meant to reduce outages, but to speed up the process of restoring power.
EPB construction manager, Houston Thomas, said "It took boots on the ground, crews in the field four days to restore the same amount of customers that our intellirupter and our smart grid done in probably thirty minutes. that's a huge time savings."
EPB wanted to share this with customers so people would be more aware of what they might hear, and, experience, during outages, or, severe weather.
