Padmount transformers

Many homeowners have padmount transformers located on their property. It is possible to attractively landscape around the transformer with ornamental shrubs but it is important to remember not to plant shrubs on the padlock side of padmount transformers. This side must be kept open for maintenance work to be done on the padmount.

A padmount transformer indicates buried lines in the area, so be sure to call or click before you dig to locate natural gas and electric underground lines or cables.

Our trained personnel will mark the locations of underground power lines, natural gas lines, and buried installations such as vaults containing transformers or electrical switchgear.
