Our Community Grid
Energy technologies are changing rapidly. We're building a dynamic electric grid that enables new technologies while continuing to meet customer needs reliably and affordably. Through our community grid, we take advantage of energy generated in our community, like solar on rooftops and methane at landfills, and integrate it seamlessly with other energy sources. We will continue to provide all of our customers with reliable service and incorporate changing technologies for the benefit of all—today and into the future.
