Vegetation Management means more reliable service
While Gibson Electric Membership Corporation cannot control the severe weather that sometimes causes power outages, we work year-around to reduce the frequency and duration of outages through our vegetation management program and our pole inspection and treatment program.
Tree trimming and all phases of vegetation management are essential to ensuring reliable electric service. With more than 3,500 miles of electric line stretching over twelve western Kentucky and Tennessee counties, there are many opportunities for tree limbs to come into contact with electric lines. This tree limb to electric line contact is the primary cause for electric blinks and power outages.
Vegetation management is so importat to your service reliability that it is one of Gibson EMC's largest ongoing expenses.
