Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) is Powering the Next in technological advancements and cybersecurity protection. Cyber threats continue to be a growing risk for all companies and we want to make these investments to benefit our customers and the overall security of the electric grid.
- We are installing new self-healing technology, using sensors and smart reclosers, to monitor power lines and equipment 24/7 and provide real-time performance data. New technology can detect power outages and reroute electricity to customers.
- Cybersecurity is a growing, ongoing threat, especially as technology evolves. Part of our proposal includes IT upgrades that will help protect our computer systems and the grid from cyber threats.
- We are also planning to enhance overall business operations with new technology, like artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and other tools to automate processes.
- These investments all work together to help build a grid that will be stronger and more responsive, helping improve our energy delivery to the people and communities we serve.
