Every year, our desert southwest region can always count on a summer scorcher filled with too many triple-digit weather days. What we have also come to expect is that each year we find summer weather reaching new extremes.

This annual tradition is a much-needed proactive measure; however, our crews are constantly at the ready in those moments when unplanned power outages occur.
