Have you ever wondered what happens when a tree limb touches a live power line? The crossing of a limb and a live wire usually results in a fire and outages for many members. Though the scene can be captivating, danger lurks for onlookers if they get too close.
Maintaining a clear right-of-way (ROW) ensures the reliability of our system and helps to prevent this scenario from happening. Our ROW crews are continuously working to trim the trees and brush from the 6,400 miles of power lines along our system. Since vegetation doesn’t stop growing, it is a never ending job that takes time to complete.
Crews are continuing the path they started in 2015 and working along the lines of Fulton County. We would like to ask for your cooperation as crews come to your area so they can work efficiently to get your ROW cleared. If your ROW needs trimming, please contact us at 770-942-6576.
