How does the City work with electric utility providers when new developments get built?

When the City receives new development applications, we coordinate with both TriCounty and Oncor to ensure the appropriate infrastructure is in place and can handle the additional development. In addition, these providers can then anticipate future consumption needs and work with Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) and power generators in the state to generate additional output.
