Education & Safety

LES wants to make sure you’re energy smart.

When it comes to providing reliable electricity, LES’ track record is one of the best in the country. One of the ways we keep your power on is by decreasing the risk of a major contributor to outages — tree branches.

Pruning trees for safety & reliability

With your help, LES’ Vegetation Management Program eliminates any branches that are potentially dangerous or may cause an outage. And, we do it in a way that keeps our community looking great.

Before pruning begins, our crew members make an attempt to contact property owners and tenants to explain the pruning work that needs to be done on the property. In the case of some emergencies, advance explanation may not be practical.

The right tree in the right place

Trees and shrubs play an important role in our lives whether we live in the city or rural areas. LES supports proper planting of trees and shrubs in our community and nurturing and maintaining existing plantings. Reducing conflicts between electrical facilities and trees and shrubs has a direct impact on you.

Installing fences and landscaping around power equipment

Properly locating fences and landscaping will help us reduce restoration time and eliminate hazards. Two days before you dig, have utility lines marked in your yard. Call 811 or fill out the online form.
