OPPD is always working to make sure customers have the most reliable power possible. A big part of that work means making necessary upgrades to aging infrastructure.

All across the 13-county service territory, OPPD projects are underway to make sure the power keeps flowing.

The underground cable replacement project, shown in this video by Goswen Visual Marketing, is underway in the Omaha metro area as well as rural areas served by OPPD.
