    • A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) provides service to selected counties on the eastern coast of Virginia and Maryland.

    • One of ANEC’s customers is Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital. As the only hospital serving Virginia’s eastern shore, it is critically important to the area.

    • Service interruptions to the hospital used to be fairly common. They were caused by frequent automobile collisions with local utility poles

    • ANEC has a system that can restore power within 40 seconds. Although that time frame is great for residential customers, a 40-second delay could be life-threatening in a hospital environment.

    • ANEC needed to supply reliable, consistent power to Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital and reduce service interruptions.
