AMES, Iowa (AP) - Electric groups from several states are continuing their visit to Iowa for workshops and training on modernizing the electric power system.
More than thirty rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities from six states will gather Thursday at Iowa State University for the end of a two-day, peer-to-peer workshop. Training on cyber security is scheduled for Friday.
The workshops are co-hosted by the Department of Energy and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.
The association represents more than 900 private, not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperatives around the country.
