Did you know that our grid serves more than 15 million people across our 50,000 square-mile area? To improve power reliability for today and for many years to come, we're strengthening our electricity distribution grid. The multiyear, multibillion-dollar investment plan includes upgrades to make power more dependable, safer, and cleaner, along with new technologies that enable us to integrate more clean energy.
We understand that our improvement activities may be an inconvenience, and we thank you for your patience while we’re at work in your community.
We track and monitor outages across our service territory, and measure our “system reliability” from this data.
Over the past 40+ years, we have supported, funded, and conducted EMF health and engineering research.
If you or someone in your household requires the regular use of electrically-powered medical equipment or other qualifying medical devices, you may be eligible for additional baseline allocation and advance notification of upcoming rotating or PSPS outages.
You may be surprised at the complex role each distribution pole plays in the electric system.
