Maintaining power lines free from interference of vegetation and other obstructions is an important element to ensure the safety and reliability of the distribution system.
Tree contacts are one of the leading causes of Power Outages in the Town of Orangeville and the Town of Grand Valley.
If you notice tree branches getting too close to power lines, please contact us at [email protected] or (519) 942-8000 and Orangeville Hydro will ensure their safe removal.
Please include in your email the closest address, a description of the tree’s location, a description of the tree itself, and your contact information.
