‘We are fully prepared for a Uri-sized event’

CPS Energy has completed about a third of all the winterization recommendations made to it by an oversight committee created by the city in the wake of February’s winter freeze, a CPS Energy official told the utility’s board members Monday. 

Chief Grid Optimization and Resiliency Officer Paul Barham said the electric utility has been steadily addressing the list of 37 recommendations given to it by the City’s Committee on Emergency Preparedness in the summer, as well as requirements from the state’s Public Utilities Commission, which were issued in October.

The utility has also been making improvements based on recommendations from Black and Veatch, an engineering firm the utility hired to help improve its network reliability and security.
