2016-17 Annual Report: Making a reliable system even better
Power lines – we have enough of them to stretch across the Pacific Ocean to the east coast of China and beyond. There are more than 7,800 miles of overhead power lines in our seven-county service area and another 5,500 miles of underground lines.
Despite the incredible size of our distribution system, we’re proud to say our electric reliability remains high. Even better, we’re building a smarter power grid and making improvements to restore your power quicker when outages happen. We’re also working with developers who may be building your next home, and cable and phone providers who attach their technology to our poles to provide you other services.
