During the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year, EPB continued to utilize advanced technology to help our customers seize opportunities and withstand challenges.
While our partners in the Smart City Collaborative joined EPB in leveraging the Smart Grid to draw more than $110 million in national research, local companies like Southtree used the world’s fastest internet to their competitive advantage in adding jobs and solidifying their position as an industry leader.
At the outset of the COVID crisis, EPB’s fiber optic network gave our customers ample capacity to choose faster speeds when the internet became the last critical lifeline for earning, learning, and staying connected with others. In April, when tornados ripped through our community, the EPB Smart Grid kept the power on for tens of thousands of households allowing us to more quickly restore the remaining customers, so they could begin repairing the damage.
Whether you’re creating something new or re-building what’s essential, EPB is there for all of our customers with advanced technology and innovative solutions.
