Utility Pole Inspections


In addition to keeping our right-of-ways clear of trees and brush, we also inspect our utility poles, lines, and equipment in our commitment to provide reli- able electric service.


Ram Utilities is conducting Lake Region Electric Coopera- tive’s annual pole inspection. Our pole inspection program involves a sound inspection and ground resistance testing for pole decay or damages. GPS coordinates of poles, are col- lected as well. The crews are also inspecting power lines, hardware, and right-of-ways. If


a pole is found to be in need of repair or replacement, they will be marked.


Each crew will be wearing clothing that will identify them as being employed by RAM Utilities. The trucks they are driving will be marked with LREC logos on the doors. The crews will use ATV’s to move from pole to pole.


The pole inspections were started in early January 4393600 and will finish up in February. Some of the communities that are listed to be inspected are Park Hill, Blackvalley, Coos


Thompson, Maynard, Welling, Hulbert, Stickross Mtn., Bald Hill, Murrell Road, Horseshoe Bend, and Wauhillau Club.

If your floor is so cold you have to wear socks with your slippers, check the insulation level in your basement or crawlspace. Just as cold air in the attic doesn’t have to make your home cold, neither does cold air from the crawlspace.


If your heating bill shows a sudden spike, it’s possible your home’s duc-

twork has cracks or kinks or is missing some of its insulation. Ask your HVAC technician to crawl up in your attic and have a look.


If some of the rooms in your home


are drafty, that could be a sign that the insulation level in the walls is too low and cold air is leaking into your home. This could be through windows or wall penetrations around electric out- lets. Seal wall penetrations with caulk; weather-strip your doors and apply plastic over windows.
