Polaris: boost your utilities' transmission & distribution operations

For over 25 years, PA’s Polaris Transmission and Distribution (T&D) benchmarking program has provided the electric industry with the most comprehensive assessment of utility business operations. Our program includes a focus on financial performance, reliability, safety, staffing and contracting, and asset management. We help participants understand why they are performing as they are – and how they can improve.


About the program

Our T&D benchmarking program is much more than data collection and analysis – it converts raw data into usable information to improve awareness of what is driving company results.

Web-based data entry, validation, reporting and documentation allows participants to work at their own pace and see results on a weekly basis. Participants are provided with reports including scorecard summaries, two-dimensional reporting, best practice comparisons and six-year trending. Members also benefit from receiving expert advice from our T&D operations experts and can contribute ideas on how the program is shaped.


Costs to participate

Participation is free of charge – we offer our T&D program as an industry-wide service to help our clients share knowledge and improve.


Why join our program? Here’s what our participants say:

  • Share information and practices with other participants
