We maintain and monitor a complex distribution system to make sure every single customer receives the electrical power they need safely and reliably. We do this with the help of our centralized Control Centre, which is manned 24/7 in Airdrie (think of it as air traffic control for the electricity grid). Through comprehensive mapping and real-time information technologies, system operators at our Control Centre can see the system end-to end at any moment. This real-time view allows them to remotely monitor, control and restore, where safely possible, the delivery of power across our entire service territory. From the control centre, we have the ability to mobilize our power line workers and other resources at a moment’s notice to quickly address any outage or issue that may occur on our system.
