Looking to the Future
We strive to be proactive in meeting the growing energy and infrastructure requirements of Heber Valley by studying and planning years in advance. As the population within the Heber Valley grows, we work to find cost effective solutions to fulfill growing needs. Integrating distributed generation, energy conservation and efficiency with future planning helps us ensure that we can continue to provide reliable affordable service to keep our community strong.
Our Strategic Plan is developed with the guidance of our Board of Directors. The plan is a living document that provides direction for operating decisions and serves as a road map into the future. Planning meetings are held on a regular basis to benchmark and refine strategies and objectives.
Transmission and distribution lines deliver energy to the communities we serve. As our service territory expands and our customer base grows, lines must be extended, and transmission paths must be hardened. Ongoing maintenance and repairs are always needed to maintain a reliable system for delivering energy.
Frequent load flow and reliability analyses are used to identify system requirements and necessary improvements. Projects that are identified as a result of these studies will be budgeted for and approved by the Board of directors for inclusion in the Company’s Capital Plan.
Each project will include a Project Analysis Form which assigns the project a name for reference, a project driver, a priority level, and includes a purpose and necessity statement and risk assessment to identify the possible outcome should the project fail to be completed. This information is included in the Capital Expenditures Budget found within the Heber Light & Power Board
Approved Budget, each year.
