At Tampa Electric, we're committed to providing you with safe, affordable and reliable electric service. Our Storm Protection Plan (SPP) is a $100 million a year investment toward increasing that reliability. The plan also provides for faster restoration after a storm. Work is beginning so you might see crews working to strengthen power lines, underground lines and trim trees.
Replace remaining wooden poles with stronger, more storm-resistant concrete or steel poles and improved technology
Identify overhead power lines that have the biggest opportunity for improvement after extreme weather and convert them to underground lines
Falling limbs or downed trees are a leading cause of power outages. Frequent trimming will help maximize power reliability.
