Our grid is ready to help you go clean and green

Our grid supports renewable energy

There are more than 10,000 solar systems installed within our service area. With solar panels becoming more and more affordable, we know this is just the start.

In fact, the pace of new systems installed so far this year is already ahead of last year. And that’s a good thing!

Why? Because our grid is ready for more customers to produce power when the sun shines and the wind blows. Our grid is designed to help us effectively manage the flow of that new energy. Best of all, we’ve made it easy for you to apply to install systems that make power from the sun, or wind. Most applications get approval within a day.

Today’s power grid is vastly different than even a generation ago. We understand the importance of embracing the changing energy landscape which is shifting from a model that has existed since Thomas Edison.

Today, power is flowing in two directions — traditional power generation traveling to homes and businesses over transmission and distribution grids and power coming back onto the grid from end points like rooftop solar or wind turbines. By effectively managing that power flow we can help avoid more costly alternatives, like building new power lines or substations. That helps keep rates reasonable.

Considering installing solar or wind power where you live? Our state-of-the-art grid is ready to welcome you. We know you depend on us – and we deliver.
