It’s a winter scenario everyone hopes to avoid.
The snow is piling up, the wind is blowing … and all of a sudden, the lights go out. What do you do next?
We don’t like bad-weather outages any more than our customers do, and we’ve prepared for these conditions by investing extensively to keep the lights on all year ‘round.
(You might have seen our announcement a few weeks ago that our investments in tree trimming, new technology and upgraded lines prevented about 410,000 outages last year. To us, that’s just a start.)
Still, severe weather – like high winds, ice, or heavy, wet snow -- can cause outages even on a strong delivery network. So what can you do to prepare?
