It’s dependant on your susceptibility.
Given the quality of supply do I have to worry about problems with my equipment or systems?
What is my susceptibility to power problems?
What is my economic exposure to such problems?
It’s the complete electrical environment, not just the quality of supply.
Does my power system have the capacity for my present needs?
How about future growth?
