With new advances in technology, we’ll be delivering electricity more reliably than ever. Sophisticated technologies will help keep outages to a minimum, and prevent them from spreading, while automated monitoring tools will predict outages and resolve them proactively. As we upgrade our electricity grid, we’re looking forward to the day when widespread outages are a thing of the past.
We take your privacy and security very seriously, and we’re working closely with the federal and state governments and industry partners on sophisticated cybersecurity for the digital era.
Our smart-grid demonstration in a residential community in Irvine, Calif., is the nation’s most comprehensive showcase of technologies for energy efficiency, monitoring, and management for the home. We’re testing how they connect, communicate, and interoperate. It’s a joint effort with the U.S. Department of Energy.
We’re committed to California’s renewable energy goals, and to helping solve a global challenge: How best to store wind energy until it’s needed? In cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy, we are putting advanced storage technologies to the test in the wind-farm region of San Bernardino County. One day soon, whether the wind’s blowing now or not, there will be plenty of clean, renewable wind power for all.
Electricity grids are being upgraded with smart technology nationwide and around the world. Accurate, real-time information – and incentives to conserve power when demand is highest – mean that everyone can play a role in preventing blackouts.
The smart meter heightens your ability to monitor and manage your energy use. With usage charts and tools such Budget Assistant, you can track your energy use and manage it more cost-effectively, while also reducing your carbon footprint.
