We're committed to providing safe, reliable power no matter the weather. Through our Storm Protection Plan (SPP), we're strengthening our power system in a number of ways to increase that reliability, plus allow for faster and less expensive power restoration for all customers. Learn more about our $100 million a year investment towards this plan, and how you may see it come to life in your own neighborhood.
