We keep trees, shrubs and other vegetation from growing near electrical equipment to maintain safe conditions for our repair crews. It also allows us to restore power more quickly during an outage.
 
transformer safety guidelines
Vegetation can create an unsafe condition for our repair crews. If a transformer box is in your yard, the following guidelines will help to plan or maintain your landscaping:
 
  • keep at least 10 feet of clear space in front of transformer doors
  • maintain at least 2 feet of clear area on either side of the transformer
  • clear a 6 foot by 6 foot area from the left front corner of the concrete transformer base
