SPAREConnect provides a mechanism for utility asset owners and operators to communicate with other SPAREConnect participants concerning the potential sharing of transmission and generation step-up (GSU) transformers and related equipment, including bushings, fans, and auxiliary components.

SPAREConnect establishes a formal program which already exists on an informal basis, to facilitate the communication of equipment needs, in the event of an emergency or other non-routine failure and connects interested participants in a more efficient and effective way.
