Great course for people who have no clue how utilities and microgrids work. Take this class if you're considering diving deeper into concepts like green energy, regulation and distributed generation.
Exceptionally informative for someone new to the Utility industry. Very engaging, especially for complex content. Melissa is excellent! Quiz material is fair. Videos are high production value.

The course gives a good overview of the industry and raises all main issues. Some things could be improved though. Quizzes could be somewhat tougher. They should focus more on understanding the covered material and avoid some basic factual questions. Non-graded assignments are very good for broadening your knowledge so should not be avoided. I'd recommend making them graded so that people don't skip them. I liked many interviews with industry experts very much.
A great course to understand various aspects of the industry and the underlying problems with integrating evolving technology.
The modules are well-organized to facilitate learning for a beginner like me.
Interviews with the industry experts were really helpful.
The instructor did a good job explaining complex ideas/problems.

I really liked the part focused on consumers habits, how the relationship of utilities to consumers are changing.
The course was maybe not challenging enough for my liking but still it is very well designed, offer a very good overview of how utilities operate in the US and what are the challenges they are facing today.

Material was clear and appropriately organized. The professor and guest speaker were insightful and came from a variety of backgrounds. My only criticism is that the course material was a bit dated which is important when discussion current regulatory environments. Thank You

The course topics were very useful. The instructor was clear, concise and enthusiastic about the subject matter. The only drawback is that the course is a few years old and some of the information is no longer current, especially where it relates to governmental policy.

The course is great for an introduction to electric utilities. It is more focused on the electric utilities in the US and it might not be very relatable for students of other countries. I would have preferred some reading material along with the videos.

Great lecturer and approach. I wish the course would go beyond the scope of American utilities and regulations.

It's more connected to US laws and regulations. It should have also focussed on other countries in general.
