Dear Owner,

Crews working for PPL Electric Utilities soon will begin important work to replace the power line that is on or near your property. This project is necessary to improve electric service for you and your neighbors throughout the region.

Construction is expected to start around April 1st and be completed in December 2019. Restoration activities will begin after the line construction has been completed. Construction crews will intermittently access the transmission line in your area as needed to construct the line.

Existing wooden poles will be replaced with taller and thicker steel poles designed to weather to a dark brown protective coating. The majority of the new poles will be approximately 100 feet tall, and will be much stronger and more resistant to wind and strong storms.

Building the new line will involve many phases of construction, including: building access roads and other access areas; drilling and installing pole foundations; transporting poles and equipment to the work locations; pole erection; wire stringing; and finally, restoration of the right of way. All work will take place within PPL’s property, easements and authorized access areas. Every effort will be made to avoid disturbing you and your property. We appreciate your patience and understanding during construction.

Construction will involve the use of heavy equipment. For your safety, please do not approach crews while they are operating equipment on or near your property.

The PPL system is becoming more reliable every year, minimizing the number of power outages for you and your neighbors. This work is part of our continuing effort to be among the most reliable electric companies in the nation.

PPL has contracted with several companies to perform the work. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 214-724-4869 or email me: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
