TEP officials say they are prepared to keep the power grid stable amid extreme heat.

With hundreds of thousands of customers needing more energy than usual to keep cool, officials say crews have prepared for worst-case scenarios.

Equipment upgrades, repairs, extra supplies and weather preparations have the utility in good shape.

Lineman and operations officials will be on standby for emergencies.

If you experience an outage, contact TEP immediately.
