Making your power more reliable

Making your power more reliable

We’re ranked 2nd in the nation for providing reliable power. Today, we’re trimming trees and using technology to make your electric experience even better.

System Upgrades

One of the most important things we do to provide reliable electricity is maintaining and updating our infrastructure. This can include changing out old poles, building new substations or replacing worn wires.

Our teams work strategically to keep our infrastructure up-to-date so you have power you can rely on. 

Smart Technology

Our Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology allows our power control team to monitor the electrical system from our campus. When a meter on our system loses power, we’re immediately notified. In many cases, we are able to diagnose the problem and re-connect service with the flip of a switch. 

This smart technology helps us keep your lights on, even when a problem arises. 

Tree Trimming

Many of the power outages in our service area are tree-related. Trees and limbs falling on overhead lines often cause blinks and power outages. 

We try to prevent this type of outage by proactively trimming trees along our power lines. Maintaining this area reduces outages but is also necessary to eliminate safety hazards for our crews and the public.
