Addressing Chinese-made equipment in the electric industry – a success story

Nov. 18, 2021
Monday, November 15, 2021 a public utility commission in a hearing on a major new transmission project referenced my blog on the DNI report on Chinese-made transformers, https://www.controlglobal.com/blogs/unfettered/dni-identifies-chinese-transformers-as-cyber-vulnerable-risks-yet-doe-and-industry-ignore-the-threat/ in a question to the utility. In response, the utility stated they would not be using Chinese-made transformers in this project. I consider that to be a success. Shouldn’t other public utility commissions be asking the same questions?
