Upcoming Vegetation Activities
Notification from Ameren
In Ameren Missouri’s continuing effort to deliver safe and reliable power, it is necessary to manage the vegetation along and under their Transmission lines to prevent trees from contacting the wires. The Transmission system is the very high voltage lines that carry the flow of electricity from power plants to customer load centers and also which carry electricity across the country.
In the near future, crews working for Ameren Missouri will start managing vegetation that might affect transmission power lines. All property owners along these transmission lines will be receiving notification even though some may not be Ameren Missouri customers. Since the timing of this work is very dependent on vegetation growth and weather, it is hard to predict exactly when they will be on your property. It may be several months before they begin and complete the vegetation work in your area.
Increased tree trimming and removals are part of Ameren Missouri’s initiative to improve service reliability. Tree trimming is an important part of Ameren Missouri’s maintenance process and is a high priority for them. While trees are not the sole reason for outages, they can be a very big factor, particularly during extreme weather. Also, because the Transmission lines have significance to the entire United States, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has adopted a national standard that also requires Ameren to manage trees and vegetation on transmission rights-of-way. For both reasons, they are diligently managing vegetation throughout their transmission system.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your trees or Ameren Missouri’s service, please contact them at 1.800.552.7583 or visit their website at www.ameren.com/transmission. They would like to hear from you.
