Environmental Concerns

Enviroment
Enviroment
The city of Ashland's Electric Department over the years has been very concerned their responsibility to the environment.
 
The Department removed transformers or switches that had pcb oil in them and replaced them with transformers with safe environmental friendly oil. 
 
There are areas in town where small animals find their way up a power pole. In these areas, for example, the department has put guards on our transformers to keep squirrels from electrocuting themselves. 
 
Our tree trimming program is designed to "train" the trees to grow around our lines, as much as possible. The department is fortunate to have an Arborist on staff and utilizes expertise when trimming.
