next is redefining how energy is delivered to our customers
Advanced technologies are changing the electricity grid. In the next 15 years, APS customers will have more choices when it comes to their energy use – smart appliances, plug-in electric vehicles, rooftop solar panels and even the possibility of battery storage. With these advancements, our job is to make sure the safety and reliability of our electricity is never compromised.
By incorporating new technologies into the grid, we will be able to:
increase customer choice and control
integrate renewable energy resources
be more flexible and responsive to the needs of our customers
Smart grid systems can provide customers with insight into their personal energy use and let us know about changes in customer demand. A smarter grid can even become “self-healing” – detecting problem areas and redirecting power to avoid or minimize an outage. Improving the efficiency, reliability and security of Arizona’s energy system is critical to meeting the changing demands of our customers and supporting the overall growth and prosperity of Arizona.
