Proper maintenance of electric facilities is a very important component of supplying reliable power. Consolidated Electric Cooperative relies on stringent maintenance and work plans to maintain and upgrade facilities on a continual basis.
Proper tree trimming is also critical to reliability. Trees and branches connecting with overhead lines is a major factor in outages. Consolidated Electric Cooperative maintains a regular tree-trimming schedule throughout our entire service territory. Trees beneath and otherwise close to electric lines are a severe threat to reliability.
