PARSG Project Goals & Impacts


The goal of the PARSG Project is to develop an affordable, resilient and sustainable Grid Roadmap to inform key energy planning processes. To accomplish this:

  • EPIC will utilize Duke Energy’s 2015-2018 outage data to conduct a power system and cost-benefit analyses to assess storm impacts in 3 grid scenarios.
  • NCCETC will lead the stakeholder process to share results and gather input on advanced grid scenarios to inform state energy planning processes.
  • NCDEQ will incorporate findings into the State Risk Assessment and Resiliency Plan, and coordinate with other agencies developing State Hazard Mitigation Plans.

PARSG Impacts

  • Fill specific data and information gaps on the value of resiliency
  • Help inform state policy, utility models and filings, regulators, and other states
  • The road map will provide metrics and illustrative impacts (3 scenarios) with these metrics to educate and inform stakeholders & future decision making
