Time: 2:00 PM ET
In 2015, LG&E and KU undertook a long-term project to transform the estimated time of restoration (ETR) process. The continuing effort has increased efficiencies around ETRs, ultimately delivering an improved customer experience during outages. Through technology, data analytics and process changes, the initiative focused on promoting distribution operations awareness on the importance of ERT establishment and accuracy as well as cause identification. LG&E and KU took home Chartwell’s 2018 Bronze Award in Outage Communications among large utilities for its efforts, which have improved outage communications as well as power quality and reliability CSAT scores.
