Utility Automation & Engineering T&D;Sep/Oct2004, Vol. 9 Issue 5, p4
The article focuses on the debate over energy transmission that U.S. President George W. Bush and politician John Kerry have entered into and this debate has centered mainly on environmental issues and how to lessen U.S. dependence on foreign oil. To understand where the candidates stand on the issue of electric power delivery, one has to do some digging. The part of Kerry's energy plan that pertains to the transmission system is particularly thin. Kerry advocates the use of innovative technologies and cutting edge software capabilities to revolutionize the country. Bush has outlined strategies to address some of the major investment hurdles. Bush advocates expanding investment in transmission and generation facilities by repealing the Public Utility Holding Company Act.
