Alternatives Benefits Calculator
The SF6 Alternatives Benefits Calculator helps transmission and distribution utilities evaluate the total lifecycle cost and environmental impacts of different circuit breaker technologies.
Established in 1999, the SF6 Emission Reduction Partnership for Electric Power Systems is a collaborative effort between EPA and the electric power industry to identify, recommend, and implement cost-effective solutions to reduce sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) emissions. SF6 is a highly potent greenhouse gas that is used in the industry for insulation and current interruption in electric transmission and distribution equipment.
