We're improving reliability in East Texas

SWEPCO is busy in East Texas. 

Employees are storm hardening the power grid to better withstand harsh weather.  They're trimming trees away from power lines after more than 70 inches of rainfall between September 2018 and June 2019 spurred vegetation growth.  You may have seen crews clearing trees along 325 miles of transmission lines. 

Watch as Distribution System Inspector Sr. Philip Johnson details these projects in East Texas.
