• Protecting Natural Resources

  • We are committed to maintaining the health of our environment by conserving, protecting and enhancing our natural resources. We fulfill this commitment by conducting our business with respect and care for the environment. 

    We use a proactive approach both to help avoid the impacts on cultural and natural resource. We have developed a plan that balances our responsibility to provide reliable, safe electricity with natural resource protection. Whether it's enhancing, conserving, restoring or managing natural resources, we perform the work while keeping potential environmental impacts on our radar. Learn more in our Vegetation Management fact sheet.

    Sustaining the animal, bird and plant life over the thousands of acres we own, work in and traverse is important to us. We recognize the importance of trees to communities and are committed to protecting the beauty of tree canopies. Our avian protection program is designed to limit the potential for bird electrocution or collision with the company's overhead towers, poles and wires infrastructure. Learn more in our Avian Protection fact sheet.

    Our environmental and engineering teams work together to design new, or redesign existing, electric facilities to protect sensitive habitats. We work with regulatory agencies and engage with landowners, public agencies, nonprofit and community organizations, and other stakeholders who share our commitment to protect and preserve the natural environment. Learn more in our Wetlands Protection fact sheet.

    We're also committed to remediating, restoring and renewing ecosystems and habitats through careful planning and collaboration with the community and the regulators. Our goal is to limit the impacts from our operations and transform previous industrial property into clean, productive assets. Learn more in our Wildlife Habitat Protection fact sheet.
