Improving reliability and innovation
Modernization of the electric grid is needed to improve our response time to outages. It will also allow more control and information for our customers, greater protection against cyber and physical attacks, and better incorporation of solar facilities big and small.
Investing in a cleaner energy future
We have one of the cleanest energy fleets in the nation and are focused on clean energy investments – including solar, natural gas and nuclear – to lower emission rates while protecting reliability and customer rates. Our typical residential customer’s carbon footprint would shrink by as much as 25 percent in the next eight years under our latest annual energy forecast. Over one-third of our customers’ electric needs could be powered with carbon-free electricity by 2032. See how we’re investing in clean energy such as solar and natural gas.
