Oncor Electric Delivery
Jim Greer is the COO of Oncor Electric Delivery.
Michelle Fay is a partner in the Energy, Sustainability, and Infrastructure segment of Guidehouse, supporting clients as they implement transformational programs.
Did you know that Oncor is the largest energy delivery company in Texas? It provides electric utility service to ninety-eight counties including those in and around Dallas, Fort Worth, Midland, Round Rock, Waco, Odessa, and Wichita Falls. While the Lone Star State's energy industry is dynamic and growing, this transformation is not without great challenges, as 2021 proved.
PUF's Steve Mitnick and I sat down with Oncor's Chief Operating Officer, Jim Greer, to hear what the person who oversees all distribution and transmission engineering construction, maintenance and operations, and systems operations anticipates in 2022. What lies ahead for his company, our industry within Texas, and our industry nationwide?

Guidehouse's Michelle Fay: As we begin the new year, share with us what your view is on what's in store, both for your company as well as for the industry in general.
Jim Greer: First of all, here in Texas, it's just incredible the amount of growth we continue to see. You may be sick of hearing about the Texas miracle, but we're still seeing inward migration of a thousand residents a day. The state population is expected to double by 2050. Some trends may have put that quicker than that, but that's big.
