We’re making progress on our service area-wide Underground Cable Replacement (UGCR) project.
This project replaces power lines buried in the dirt more than 40 years ago with more modern, 可靠的行. We began this project in 2012 and plan to finish in 2035. When we finish, we’ll have upgraded 7,000,000 feet of power lines.
Sometimes, we will need to replace underground equipment with above ground equipment. Green metal boxes will mark these places. The boxes provide a place to route power lines to different paths — sort of like intersections on a street.
Installing above-ground equipment improves access for our crews and helps us restore power more quickly.
Our work might affect landscaping and customer property like fencing. 在这些情况下, we will visit with you before working on your property to find the best solution for everyone.
To ensure our crews have safe access to work on the equipment when needed, customers must keep the following distances clear around above-ground electrical equipment on their property:
