What are the rules of electrical right-of-way maintenance?
When we flip a switch, we expect a light to turn on. When we plug our hair dryer in, we expect it to work. We understand how our appliances connect to electricity, but we don’t spend much time thinking about how our electricity gets to us. The answer is in our power lines — power lines are able to carry electricity from miles away to make sure we can accomplish tasks as minor as using an electric toothbrush and as major as keeping our family from overheating in the summer. Power lines are a necessity to our lives, and your co-op is responsible for making sure your power lines are working as efficiently and as safely as possible.
