What types of actions does TID undertake to lessen the likelihood of outages?

November 28, 2023

We continually monitor, maintain and update the electrical system to ensure it provides safe and reliable power. Among other tasks, we’re responsible for trimming trees around our high voltage lines throughout the District. Our staff periodically patrols the District’s transmission and distribution lines to ensure they are free of potential hazards and in proper working order. Also, many projects each year help to upgrade and replace critical components of the electrical system, making sure the system is safe and able to provide reliable power to all our customers.
