Grid Management & Resiliency

The rising risk of power outages has prompted CPA to invest in backup battery storage energy at essential facilities, such as city halls and community centers, to minimize impacts during emergencies or significant weather events. CPA also offers financial incentives to customers who agree to reduce their electricity usage during times when the grid is stressed and electricity is expensive.
