REC works hard every day to provide its members with safe, reliable electricity. We regularly plan projects to upgrade power lines. Upgrades can more than double the capacity compared with the old lines. They also improve service reliability. Trees are one of the major causes of power outages in areas with overhead utility lines. We work tirelessly to clear branches near and on-top of overhead lines to provide safe and reliable service.
At REC, safety is our top priority and it should be yours as well. Do you know how to keep yourself and your family safe around a downed power line or how to safely use a generator during a power outage? Find the answers and other important safety information. It could save your life.
