Hardening the grid to address climate-change risk

  • Strengthening the most critical transmission lines to withstand extreme winds.
  • Bolstering distribution lines serving critical community lifelines such as hospitals, military facilities, communications infrastructure, emergency response facilities and emergency shelters.
  • Hardening targeted utility poles that could significantly delay restoration efforts if compromised.
  • Enhancing vegetation management to prevent trees from falling into lines. This program would add to existing vegetation management efforts.
