“For cooperatives, the success of any of these strategic options can be enhanced by the proper application of automation and information systems. Industry-wide, electric utilities spent between 1.8 and 2.5 percent of annual revenues, about $5 billion, on information systems during 1994, according to Newton-Evans Research. Many experts believe that this proportion will rise to between three and four percent during the 1995-97 timeframe.”
