Stay Away from Electrical Substations

An electrical substation converts electricity to a lower voltage so it can be safely routed and delivered to your home. Because high-voltage power runs through substation equipment, please avoid substation areas and the fences that surround them. Keep the following safety tips in mind:

Never release metallic balloons near substations. If they get caught in the equipment or lines, they can cause power outages. Never fly kites or drones near electrical substations. If you do and the kite or drone gets caught inside the fence, let us retrieve it for you. Teach youngsters to stay away from electrical substation fences. The area is dangerous, and these fences are NOT for climbing. If you see a substation fence or transformer cabinet that is open or looks to be vandalized, please contact us immediately.
