WHAT IS IT? The number of miles driven by OPPD employees in 2017. With nearly 16,000 miles of electric power lines in its service territory, employees have to cover a lot of miles to provide electricity to OPPD’s customers.

That driving must also be done safely, a point of pride for OPPD. The utility was recently featured on a local TV station for its commitment to safe driving and preparing employees for the road. The story also featured OPPD’s safety culture.

OPPD has more than 1,300 units in its transportation fleet, including bucket trucks, digger derricks and utility trailers.
