Hello Farmington residents! A team of tree trimmers were hard at work last week to make the grid in your city more safe and reliable. This team was working off of Orchard Lake Rd. Since 70 percent of downtime hours during an outage is due to damage caused by trees, this accelerated tree trimming work should result in greater power reliability for area residents. 

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. 

Make sure to regularly check the Farmington community page to learn more about what’s going on in your neighborhood. You can also follow DTE on Facebook and Twitter for even more updates and information.
