Electric system basics

Turning on a lightswitch in your home is the final step in a long process that involves Vectren's entire electric system.


Power is generated at a power plant using fuels like coal or natural gas, or via other sources like solar panels.


The generated power moves to our transmission system, which stores and converts the power for use.


Finally, our distribution system of electric lines and poles distributes the power to homes and businesses.
