Infrastructure

The UWUA advocates for rebuilding our infrastructure to reverse the damage done by years of neglect by the market driven, deregulated industry. We must modernize our electric, gas and water systems to create better efficiencies and promote conservation.

From the UWUA Constitution:

The current condition of our gas, water and electrical infrastructure threatens the U.S. economy and the safety of U.S. citizens. Natural and man-made disasters over the last several years have exposed the system’s weaknesses.

Modernization of the grid has been made all the more urgent by our increasing dependence on a reliable supply of electricity.

Modernization of the grid has been made all the more urgent by our increasing dependence on a reliable supply of electricity. Without that, telecommunication, the financial system, healthcare, emergency response, and the internet, are not reliable. Yet, the threats to the grid have been growing even as society’s dependence on the grid has increased.
