For Rolling Hills Electric Cooperative, which aims to protect public safety and preserve the reliable delivery of electricity, wildfire mitigation is without question a top priority. While an electric utility can never fully eliminate the risk of fire, Rolling Hills Electric is committed to taking all practical actions available to prevent the devastation a wildfire could bring to the people and communities we serve. 

Examples of how Rolling Hills Electric is mitigating wildfires:

  • Annual inspections of transmission lines, distribution lines, and underground distribution
  • Detailed inspections as needed
  • Pole testing
  • Infrared inspections
  • Vegetation management (tree trimming)
  • Installing reclosers that will lock open if a fault is detected
  • Public and Emergency Responder Safety
