SMECO's president and CEO, Austin J. Slater, Jr., reviewed the Co-op's activities of the past year in his remarks. Slater discussed SMECO's solar farm, which has been operational since November 2012, and the nationwide increase in solar home energy production. SMECO's Southern Maryland Reliability Project, which began construction in 2012, is scheduled to be online by the end of this year. The 230,000-volt transmission line completes a loop throughout the service area, and the project is estimated to be $2 million under budget. Slater also discussed some fundamental changes that he sees in the future of the electric industry: the global policy emphasis to reduce greenhouse gas, the growth in natural gas production, the advancement of distributed generation, such as solar and wind energy produced at homes and schools, and the evolving smart grid.
