Does the Company offer a tree trimming service?
Yes. Trees can pose a threat to our electrical infrastructure and our customers.
When trees encroach on our low-tension (LT) and high-tension (HT) lines, we will trim the trees to the point where they are no longer hazardous to the lines. Anything beyond this, customers will have to employ a private contractor to do for them. Due to the number of problems with trees this work has to be prioritized.
We therefore encourage customers to trim trees before they affect the lines and, most of all, to plant trees away from power lines.
What is the cost of this service?
There is no cost as long as the trees are a potential danger to the lines.
