Overhead crews installed a new pole for a home that is under construction on E. Coon Lake Road. When installing a new pole, several holes need to be drilled and aligned correctly. The alignment is important for placing things like cross arms, transformers, and secondary racks on the pole. Everything needs to be spaced out enough for proper function and for safety reasons. Once placed, everything on the pole works together to power your homes.
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.
