In your neighborhood
You will oftentimes see our linemen and/or contractors working in your neighborhood. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable, efficient energy solutions with exceptional service to our members. One of the ways we provide reliable and affordable power is by maintaining our system. In fact, PVREA has over 4,000 miles of power lines. Tree trimming, drone use and construction projects are a part of our maintenance plans to ensure reliable power service to you, our members. Here is where we're working in your neighborhood. If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-432-1012.

Power Pole Inspections
During 2021, we inspected roughly 7,500 poles. We also re-inspected some of these poles to ensure reliable measurements, and this work finished in late February of 2022.
We will resume power pole inspections this summer.
Drone inspections for 2022 started at the beginning of May and will be conducted through the summer.
We utilize drones to look for trees that need trimmed and inspect equipment for maintenance problems. Our drone inspections for 2021 are complete, resulting in efficient inspections *Updated 5/9/2022
Fiber Installation - Grid Improvement Project
We use a contractor, MasTec, to install fiber optic cable on our existing overhead power lines and into our existing underground electric corridors. The crews are currently working in the Livermore, Waverly, Wellington, and Bellvue areas. You may see bucket trucks and crews with boring equipment in your area as we work on this project throughout our entire service territory. We will only operate in our right-of-way; if we do not have proper access, we will work with members to gain access. Learn more about this project.
