ComEd will be performing vegetation management activities on distribution circuits in Joliet during January and February.
The vegetation management activities are a key component of ComEd’s maintenance program to ensure system electrical reliability as vegetation contact with ComEd equipment is a leading cause of outages.
This work is necessary since trees interfering with electric wires can damage equipment and cause service outages and safety hazards. ComEd will be trimming any tree or brush that interferes with electric wires running from pole to pole.
Trimming may or may not be required on your property, but all trees that do require trimming will be maintained during this project.
Trimming will be performed by a qualified line clearance contractor using qualified utility arborists. Supervisors and General Foremen will be in close contact with the crews, ensuring that the work is performed properly.
There is no charge for this professional service. ComEd
has notified the affected customers and property owners.
