Vegetation Management

NHEC is responsible for maintaining the “rights-of-way” where power lines are located. Trees and vegetation in close proximity to the electric system are the leading cause of power outages. To keep our electrical distribution system as safe and reliable as possible, we are continually maintaining the spaces occupied by our 5,500 miles of energized line.
