ABSTRACT
The article provides an overview of the electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) networks in North America. Electric power generation in Canada is primarily based on hydropower and is deemed cost competitive with other countries in the region, enabling hydro-rich provinces to export power. Over 3,100 utilities and almost 2,100 non-utility power producers supply power in the U.S., with the majority of the power system consisting of the Eastern, Western and Texas Interconnections.
