Pole Plant Maintenance Program
Battle River Power Coop replaces damaged and unsafe poles regularly to maintain the power system, and safety for the community. Our poles have scheduled testing, and are identified for replacement.
Battle River Power Coop changes poles in the winter, which works especially well in cultivated areas to minimize crop damage or places that will be flooded later on. It is also a perfect time of year for our own staff to complete the work instead of hiring a contractor. Although power outages will have to be scheduled, you can be assured that work will be scheduled to minimize/reduce your discomfort by keeping the outage as short as possible, and re-scheduling outages if temperatures reach minus 20 degrees Celsius or colder.
