Pole Treatment Contractors Working in Grant, Pendleton Counties
Our pole treating contractor, Power Pole Maintenance Company (PPMC) has begun treating poles on our system this week.
These crews will primarily be working in Grant and Pendleton counties and may be seen by our members in white Ford full size pickups with “Contractor for Owen Electric” on them. Taped in the window of all trucks is a “letter of authority” and all crew members have been equipped with a photo ID badges that have "Owen Electric contractor" on it. They also will be wearing a high visibility vest with “contractor for Owen Electric” on the back.
Their scope of work consists of visiting and visually inspecting every pole, excavating around poles that are 10 years of age or older, and treating them at ground line level.
They will also be removing existing pole tags from meter poles and adding a “member owned” tag.
