Have you often wondered what would happen if the wind blows hard and a tree limb happens to brush a power line? Snap. Crackle. Pop! More times than not, it can result in a power surge and/or loss of power for members. Because reliability is so important to us, we take steps to ensure our lines are clear by sending crews out to clear the right-of-way (ROW) in an effort to provide reliable service you can trust.
In some cases, the crossing of a limb and a live wire results in a fire and outages for many members. Though the scene can be captivating, danger lurks for onlookers if they get too close. Maintaining a clear ROW ensures the reliability of our system and helps to prevent this scenario from happening. Our ROW crews are continuously working to trim the trees and brush from the 6,400 miles of power lines along our system. Since vegetation doesn’t stop growing, it is a never-ending job that takes time to complete.
We would like to ask for your cooperation as crews come to your area so they can work efficiently to get your ROW cleared. If you have a ROW concern, please contact us at 770-370-2770 or you may submit a request.
