The ability to provide reliable electric service along with the safety of our employees and members are very important to Great Lakes Energy. 为了实现两者, we must maintain our equipment and power line rights-of-way through a variety of practices, 包括植被管理. 查看bbin直营网排名的植被管理计划手册以获得更多信息.
Trees are the most common cause of power outages for Great Lakes Energy members. 为会员提供更可靠的服务, our 植被管理 department performs routine maintenance of trees and other vegetation on our more than 11,000英里的架空线路.
Routine vegetation management activities are completed on a regular cycle of approximately every seven years.
The amount of space required for overhead electric line clearance is determined by the Rural Utility Service and also by the species of tree and voltage of the line. 有时把树砍掉比大刀阔斧地修剪要好, 尽管每棵树都是单独评估的. Our professional, certified contractors perform tree pruning and removal for Great Lakes Energy. Please do not attempt to prune a tree yourself if it’s under or near an overhead line.
