Without OPPD employees in the utility’s power plants, there would be less electricity available for customers. It’s that simple.

They’re the ones who ensure power reliably flows from the plants to the substations and to customer homes. The work they do is complex and large in scale. One repair or maintenance job can take hours or days or months depending on its scope.
