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.
