Wildlife Outage Protection
Fact: Almost 20% of utility outages are caused by wildlife tampering
Your Equipment is at Risk
Animals hanging around your transmission, substation and distribution power equipment poses a very large danger to both animals and the reliability of your assets. When wildlife creates a connection via phase-to-phase or phase-to-ground contact, it can trigger an arc flash, leading to severe outages.
Such disruptions can impose significant costs and inconvenience on both the utility and its customers.
