Every month in this new section, we’ll tell you where our maintenance and construction crews will be and what they will be doing.  

Right-Of-Way Maintenance

Clearing tree and overgrown vegetation is vital to providing safe, reliable power to our member-consumers.  

We clear certain area, known as rights-of-way, to:

  • Keep power lines clear of tree limbs
  • Restore power outages more quickly
  • Keep crews and members of our community safe
  • Reduce unexpected costs for repairs

You will see our contract tree trimming crews in the following areas:

  • Porter County:  Jackson, Pine and Washington townships
  • Starke County: Center, Washington, California and North Bend townships
