The Association has implemented a strong and proactive approach towards vegetation management as many blinks and outages are attributed to trees contacting our power lines. A large part of our distribution system runs through heavily timbered areas where snow/ice laden trees and branches often fall into our lines. Though our Vegetation Management program is well organized with a coordinated schedule, we depend on our members to notify us if they see a potential hazard to our lines due to trees. Together we can reduce the hazards associated with trees contacting power lines and improve the reliability of our system. Please contact us at (800) 332-9540 to report any potential hazards.
