Our employees are like you; we care about the environment. Count on us to get the work done with minimal environmental impact, meeting and following our own internal guidelines and training.
Our environmental initiatives include an Avian Protection Program, support for partners in conservation, wildfire education and waste and vegetation management.
We are committed to providing safe and reliable electricity to our customers while being responsible to the environment. We incorporate environmental issues into our day-today work.
Beyond ensuring proper disposal of potentially hazardous materials, like street light bulbs or batteries, we keep other things out of our landfills. Transformers are refurbished whenever possible. From the paper in our offices to the transformers that keep your lights on, we are committed to reducing, recycling and reusing.
Wildfire education and prevention is the best measure to reduce the dangers for electrical facilities and private property. That’s why we’re dedicated to:
Fire management plans in high-risk locations
Frequent checks of provincial fire notices and municipal fire bans
Employee training on fire suppression equipment and response procedures
Customer education on potential electrical fire hazards that can cause wildfire
Maintaining trees, and protecting water and the species that habitat an area, are all critical for the delivery of safe, reliable electricity. Trees that come into contact with power lines can cause fires and outages. We are committed to safety while respecting the environment through our integrated vegetation management strategy that includes specialized training for our employees.
