Our goal is to keep your lights on. Vegetation management is an important part of providing safe and reliable electric service. To manage vegetation effectively, we assess our system, prioritize the work that needs to be done, and schedule the work. We work hard to clear unsafe and unwanted growth away from power lines and other equipment. You can help by reporting trees and other growth that may cause a safety problem or might interfere with the power lines.
