We work hard to provide our members with safe and reliable energy. To help maintain this level of service, we ask that you keep in mind a few landscaping tips.

  • Leave clearance for our employees to work on utility equipment.
  • Trim shrubs and bushes planted near utility equipment.
  • Keep utility equipment free from obstructions.

If you have a guard dog for security, please contact us, and we will make sure that our employees know. We may ask that you confine animals while we are working on your equipment. If the equipment is located behind a fence or locked gate, please contact us to arrange access.
