Keeping our electric system as reliable as possible
June 1, 2014
Tree trimming is a regular part of your electric cooperative’s operations. Capital Electric Cooperative, like all electric utilities, is required to maintain appropriate clearance between trees and electric transmission and distribution lines. Trees need to be trimmed, and in some cases removed, to minimize potential power outages and to eliminate fire and safety hazards due to trees contacting energized electric lines.
Capital Electric typically uses local contract tree-trimming crews to perform this task. Bullinger Tree Trimming will have crews operating within our service area again this year.
Please know that they are working on your cooperative’s behalf to help keep our electric system as reliable and safe as possible.
