Business Continuity

Electric companies have a strong track record of preparing for many types of emergencies that could impact their ability to generate and/or deliver power. Companies’ business continuity planning includes preparing for events and scenarios that may affect their ability to provide reliable electric power, as well as events that could severely limit the number of employees able to report to work.

The business continuity plans developed by electric companies are designed to protect the people working for them and to ensure operations and infrastructures are properly supported. Electric power companies work together with federal, state, and local governments to ensure that they can respond effectively to any event.

  • Learn how mutual assistance​ is an essential part of electric utilities' business continuity planning.
