“We’re out of business without it. We really are.”

Ed HarrichDirector of Surgical Services, Pullman Regional Hospital

Ed Harrich is the director of surgical services at Pullman Regional Hospital in Pullman, Washington. Reliable electric power—without interruption—is absolutely essential to many of the life-saving functions he and his team perform on a daily basis.

The hospital is backed by a continuous supply of electric power, coursing across an intricate network of generators, wires, transformers, and substations. This network is the electric power grid. The devices we make at SEL are embedded in this network, protecting the flow of power so his team can focus on the life in their hands.

We do our part so they can do theirs, and together we power the future.

From the generation source, high-voltage electricity travels great distances along transmission lines through a series of substations until it reaches communities, where it is distributed to homes, schools, businesses, and more. SEL devices play a critical role in protecting the power at each stage.
