POWERING PROGRESS EVERY DAY
When Oncor laid its first power lines at the beginning of the 20th century, who could have imagined the speed of change that would fuel the ongoing need for electricity? With more than 138,500 miles of transmission and distribution lines serving more than 400 communities and 99 counties, we do more than simply keep the lights on. Throughout the decades, the same determination that fired up the first incandescent bulbs across Texas hasn’t faltered. At Oncor, the sparks of innovation are alive and well.
Each year, we invest billions in state-of-the-art infrastructure and advanced technologies to create a safer, smarter, more reliable power grid. Through our investment, we leverage the power of predictive analytics to monitor dangerous storms, identify problem areas before they happen, and restore service more quickly. We champion an electric superhighway that delivers wind and solar power. And most importantly, we partner with the people of Texas—working with communities, businesses, government representatives, and non-profit organizations to nurture the quality of life and economic well-being that makes Texas an incredible place to live.
Ensuring Texans have safe, reliable energy when and where they need it takes collaboration and careful planning. Oncor works closely with the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to determine needs and make sure our energy infrastructure keeps pace with capacity—today and in the future.
