Ensuring safe, reliable, and abundant energy

We're working hard to modernize the energy grid that delivers your power. Through digital technology and two-way communications, often referred to as the Smart Grid, we can improve the reliability and efficiency of the energy grid. In terms of more visible action, you might see us replacing existing electric meters with new Smart Meters. A Smart Meter offers two-way, automated communications between the meter and the utility.

Ultimately, using Smart Meters and Smart Grid capabilities saves energy and reduces costs for you, our customers. With advanced monitoring and control capabilities, these new technologies can identify problems instantly and route electricity around them to minimize outages.
