A challenge facing the wind power industry is the grid’s inability to carry more power. Many lines cannot handle the load needed to transmit wind power efficiently, but new lines and towers can be costly. CTC Global’s ACCC conductor solution for power transmission lines can enable the replacement and efficient upgrade of current lines, without the creation of new towers. It can also cut line losses by 30% to 40%, under any load condition, compared to other conductors of the same diameter and weight.
