Maintain a high degree of reliability in the electric delivery grid through cooperative actions between the City and Oncor.
One of the major impacts of climate change in the Dallas region is the potential for a greater number of more intense storms. Significant damage to the electric grid can occur under these circumstances. The City will work with Oncor (electric utility company) to assist them in making the investment necessary to improve the grid. One option is to bury electric lines, especially in areas that are highly susceptible to high winds and storms (heavily wooded areas), and/or carry out sensitive tree trimming.
