Vectren inspects poles to determine replacement needs. If replacement is essential, many are replaced with stronger, more durable poles to further prevent impact from weather or other interferences. In the last five years alone, nearly 11,000 poles have been replaced.
Underground Cable Replacement
Many neighborhoods have underground cables, which transport electricity to your home. While these cables are less impacted by weather and other interferences, they can wear down. Vectren has a replacement plan for aging underground cables.
Some current and future projects include:
Vectren continues to add smart technology or distribution automation to distribution substations and lines in order to better pinpoint and isolate problems. By pinpointing the problem, service crews know where to go to address the situation. They are able to remotely isolate the issue, restoring power to many customers immediately. The remainder of the customers will be restored as soon as the issue is resolved.
