Electric Capital Projects
Our electrical distribution system is over 50 years old in some parts of the city and is beyond its useful life.
We are investing in our electrical distribution infrastructure to ensure that you continue to have a safe and reliable supply of electricity. Our projects involve replacing old poles, wires and transformers with new equipment that meets today's standards.
The following map provides an overview of the capital project works planned for 2018.
Infrastructure Updates: Upgrading to Ensure Quality Service
Upgrading our infrastructure is an important part of our customer service. We upgrade to continue to provide you with safe, reliable electricity.
Pole Inspection Program
As part of our continuing commitment to the safe, reliable delivery of electricity, we invest annually in a Pole Inspection Program. Poles are inspected and assessed for strength, durability and longevity, and we deal with any safety risks. Pole inspectors work throughout the year to complete inspections.
One in three power outages in Windsor is caused by tree branches that are too close to electrical equipment. In a strong wind, these branches can bring down lines or damage transformers, causing outages, fires and danger to the community. When you see our crews, and our contracted crews, trimming trees, you'll know we're putting your safety first.
Tree Trimming Locations:
November 2017 through May 2018 in Area "C".
Area "C": East of Central Avenue to the Tecumseh Town Border, North of County Road 42 to the Detroit River
