Before you start trimming
If there are energized power lines in close proximity, call OPALCO so that we can advise and assist in tree removal.
Please don’t attempt to cut a dead or dying tree that is leaning heavily toward OPALCO power lines. Call us!
And learn more by reading our OPALCO Safety Matters_ROW whitepaper.
OPALCO wants you safe!
Avoid the Big Green Box
Please stay away from pad-mounted transformers (the big green box). Keep areas surrounding the pad-mounted transformer clear so that workers can safely maintain transformers as needed. Keep shrubs and structures at least 10 feet away from the transformer doors and 4 feet away from sides.
