The electric power industry performs in a way that no other industry can match. We protect and control electric power moving at the speed of light, and we deliver it at the flick of a switch—instantaneously. This type of performance is an obligation we have to the public. If we can’t consistently deliver that type of performance, we fail.
It’s a standard of operation that calls for us to continually look for ways to improve, trip faster, and push the limits of modern power systems. We are in the business of saving milliseconds. The less time it takes to safely trip and clear a fault, the more power we can transmit to more feeders that goes to more homes, businesses, and services.
That’s why, at MSPSC, we ask the tough questions, challenge each other, and push the limits of our industry’s performance.
