The Distribution & Transmission Automation Group will be holding its annual Spring Conference at the Augusta Marriott Convention Center in Augusta, GA May 14th – 16th 2019.
This conference promises to offer many quality presentations and educational sessions on technical topics including SCADA, metering, communications, engineering, and general industry practices. This year we will be touring Plant Vogtle. That’s right, Plant Vogtle! If you are attending, please be sure to wear 100% natural fiber clothing, leather work boots and hardhat. The tour will consist of a riding tour around the construction site of Units 1 and 2 and a walking tour of Units 3 and 4.
We will also be visiting Goshen Transmission Substation. You will need your hardhat and leather work boots in order to enter the 230/115 Kv substation. We will also be hosting a Vendor Expo at the Augusta Marriott on May 15th! There will be a lot of new/current technologies offered by various manufacturers. Again this year, be prepared for a lot of great training and topics from GTC and other vendors.
The conference is open to personnel in the electric utility industry and is offered free of charge. This is a great opportunity to learn about current as well as new technologies, issues, events and happenings that affect our industry. There will be ample time for networking with peers to share ideas, as well.AuA
