Weathering the Summer Heat Together
This week, California experienced its worst heat wave in 14 years and our power system crews and field staff worked 24/7 to keep the power flowing to our customers. We were even able to help out customers in the rest of the state and the Southwest United States by providing surplus energy that we generated and conserved, to the California Independent System Operator, Imperial Irrigation District and to the Arizona grid, helping them keep their customers powered.
Some of our customers unfortunately experienced localized outages due to overloaded equipment. If you were affected, thank you for your patience as our crews worked tirelessly in extreme conditions to get your power restored. We've invested billions in infrastructure replacement over the past decade and will continue our efforts to improve reliability for all of our customers.
