Local Power Organizations (LPOs) include municipal utilities, local government departments, electricity cooperatives, some community choice aggregators, and other organizations that provide electricity distribution and other services to customers within a defined geographic area. In the U.S. alone there are approximately 3,000 such organizations, serving tens of millions of homes, businesses, farms, and schools. The Distribution of Power Project focuses on the challenges and opportunities that the energy transition presents for LPOs, including the evolution of the twin trends of renewable distributed energy resources and the step change to digital electricity infrastructure.
