The utility is committed to the strategic goal of building a world-leading energy internet company with Chinese characteristics. It remains customer-oriented, and continues to improve the reliability of power supply, strengthen its own standard system, and promote lean operation and intelligent management. It aims to build a first-class modern distribution network that enables sound management through good equipment and technology under well-designed architect, so as to provide quality services that underpin efforts to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects.
