Your Cooperative

What is Lane Electric doing to protect the community?

Lane Electric continues to make system improvements to mitigate wildfire risks. The co-op began moving lines underground in 1990 and over the past 30 years has continued to bury power lines to protect from wind, wildfires, and weather. Each year we apply for FEMA grants to move more of our system underground.

We have a vegetation management staff with arborists and forestry experts that work to trim and remove trees to keep power lines clear. Additionally, we perform regular maintenance and conduct planned outages to keep equipment up to date. Preventing wildfires takes work from both the community and the co-op and we are committed to doing our part.

We encourage you to sign up for public safety alerts from the National Weather Service to alert you about dangerous wildfire conditions. If a PSPS event is triggered, we may attempt to contact you so please login to your Lane Electric account and ensure your contact information is up to date.
