Right of Way Maintenance

Tuesday, 23 June 2020 14:19

Trees and power lines are not a good combination, both can sway in high winds, more especially in hot weather when carrying heavy loads or in cold weather if covered with ice.

In an effort to combat this ever fast growing problem Franklin Electric has contracted Affordable Tree Service to maintain the almost 800 miles of right of way.

Currently crews will be working in the Waco & Tharptown service areas of Franklin Electric.

For questions or concerns please call (256) 332-2730


Tips to remember:
• Consider the height of the tree once it is mature.  Never plant trees near a power line that could grow within 30 feet of it.
• Don't plant near underground utility services.  Roots can interfere with underground wires.
• Keep the area around electric meters and service poles clear of vegetation that could limit access.
• ALWAYS call before you DIG!
