Power Line Safety

We have more than 5,000 km of transmission lines spanning communities, rivers, mountains and forests. These lines bring power from our generating stations to customers in cities and towns throughout the province, but they can also be hazardous if damaged in extreme weather or for anyone using the rights-of-way for hunting, snowmobiling or skiing.

If you have to work around power lines, doing anything from drilling and trenching to trimming trees, you should start by giving us a call at 1.888.737.1296 to determine any safety issues or concerns in your area.
