EPB strives to maintain natural beauty while helping prevent outages.
Vegetation is one of the leading causes of outages in our electric system because high wind, ice, lightning and heavy rain cause trees and limbs to fall which can down power lines. EPB strives to maintain the natural beauty of trees and shrubs while at the same time ensuring your safety and preventing electrical line damage and potential outages.
