The high-capacity, high-return solution
The ACCC® conductor provides a high-capacity, high-strength, high-efficiency, and low-sag alternative to traditional transmission and distribution lines. These characteristics make the ACCC® conductor an integral part of a high-return scenario when considering an investment in any new line.
Here’s how: With the high strength and low sag of ACCC®, your new line can be supported with fewer and shorter structures, which reduces upfront capital costs, completion timeframe, and environmental impact. The ACCC conductor’s high capacity offers the greatest return per dollar spent on energy generation. This adds up increased ROI, reduced generation capacity cost, less fuel consumption and lower emissions. In the US, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 offers a number of additional incentives for using a technology such as ACCC conductor that increase the capacity, efficiency and reliability of the grid.
