That’s a good question, since 40% of power outages (one out of three), are caused by branches falling on power lines. Each year, we invest $60M to clear our lines.
Since our system is made up of over 115,000 km of lines, this work must be done at regular intervals, every three to six years. This is referred to as the pruning cycle. See when we will clear the lines near your home.
If the situation worries you, please inform us about vegetation that is too close to power lines and might cause damage.
