These guidelines are intended for individuals whose proposed construction activities will impact TEC’s rights-of-way. TEC’s primary concern is public safety and to help ensure the continuous safe flow of the nation’s energy supplies. For complete details and requirements for the design and construction of facilities on TEC’s rights-of-way please call 1-800-255-6815.

Consult The Energy Cooperative early in your planning.

The Energy Cooperative (TEC) must review and approve all plans for proposed construction impacting a TEC right-of-way. To expedite construction or excavation, submit your plans to TEC for review in the design phase of the project before applying for permits or committing to construction. TEC requires a minimum of 45 days to review design plans.

Call The Energy Cooperative and 811 before construction begins.

No construction or excavation activities of any kind shall be performed on or near The Energy Cooperative’s (TEC) rights- of-way, including crossing with heavy equipment, or blasting on or near the right-of-way before TEC personnel have established the exact location and elevation of all affected facilities and the limits of the right-of-way. Start your project by calling 811 “Before You Dig”. (www.OHIO811.org).  Request that both the location and approximate depth of the pipeline be determined.
