Overhead lines are often the most effective way to deliver power to our customers. It’s not always appropriate to install wires underground but we do use this option under certain circumstances.

We seek out individual solutions for all our customers and their communities. Decisions are made after careful analysis and planning by our engineers, who consider factors such as Right of Way, the location of trees, distance to a power source and ease of repair. Should you ever have questions about electrical equipment on your property or concerns about service reliability, please feel free to contact us.
