How we get electricity to you

How we get electricity to you 

  1. Our generating plants make electricity.
  2. Power is then sent from our plants to the communities we serve, over high-voltage transmission lines.
  3. Substations transform the voltage of the power entering them from high to low and send it to ‘feeder’ lines.
  4. Lower voltage feeder lines deliver power to areas serving 100 to 3,000 customers.
  5. Transformers on power poles convert power to the lower voltages used in homes and businesses.
  6. Service distribution lines take power from transformers to your house.
