What can I do to help prevent outages?

One of the easiest ways members can help us increase the reliability of our electric distribution is to report trees growing near our lines and facilities. We appreciate the beauty and shade provided by trees, but tree branches growing too close to our overhead power lines can cause outages when they contact or fall on the lines, especially during severe weather such as high winds or ice storms.

Request tree-care service by calling PEC's Vegetation Management (580) 559-8482, 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Thursday, and we will send a crew to trim the vegetation near our lines. Never trim trees around power lines yourself! Working around high-voltage electric lines is dangerous and can have deadly consequences.
