Our crews were working on installing a new pole on Wolverine Road where a new home is being built. The two existing utility poles were spaced apart which was causing the lines to hang low in the center. The new pole was placed to raise and support primary and secondary lines in the middle. This update will help prevent the sagging of lines near the new homes and will also create a less obstructed view for the new homeowners.    

You may see more of our crews in the coming months as part of our accelerated electric reliability projects in your area, including more tree trimming and infrastructure updates. All these projects are underway to improve your service and reliability for the short- and long term.
