Summer heat is here, and that means high energy demand on those particularly hot days. Meeting that demand and making sure you have safe, reliable, low-cost energy 24/7 is at the top of our list.

In general, we are investing billions of dollars to enhance the system and improve service reliability for you. These improvements are resulting in fewer service interruptions (a decline of 35 percent in the last seven years) and shorter durations when there is a power outage.
