Plan your landscaping correctly
Planting trees and other landscaping around a home or business can be a major investment in both time and money. Careful planning before planting will help ensure that such work does not adversely impact our facilities. PRVEPA crews continually trim all trees along our ROWs to ensure the safe and reliable distribution of electricty.
When landscaping near power lines, choose shrubs or small trees. There are also restrictions regarding what can be planted around pad-mounted transformers and other facilities. For any questions regarding line clearances and proper landscaping, contact a local PRVEPA office.
