Holland BPW inspects electric poles regularly to ensure safety and reliability of the Holland BPW electric system.
We have contracted Utility Asset Management Inc. to conduct a thorough inspection of the poles in certain areas. The inspection includes analysis of wood condition, wire and communication cable condition, and any other concerns. The inspection process began in May and will take several months. (If your area is scheduled for inspection, we mailed you a post card in the spring.)
Utility Asset Management will be accessing power poles for inspection as allowed by the Holland BPW terms of service.
