Hurricanes, ice storms, tornadoes…
DID YOU KNOW?
One inch of ice on a single span of electric wire weighs up to 1,250pounds
Despite our best efforts, some damage can’t be avoided.
Our goals are SIMPLE:
Restore power SAFELY
to the GREATEST
number of people
in the SHORTEST
Employees or response services use every available phone line to receive your outage reports.
Thanks for being patient!
Ever wonder how we decide where to fix things first?
The flow starts with an ocean of power … (generation plants)
…diverges into a series of transmission lines and substations…
..then flows into small service lines (tap lines) to homes and businesses.
We have to fix the big problems
(transmission lines, substations) first
before power can flow to your home!
