Right of Way
FPUA owns and operates an extensive network of electric transmission and distribution lines, as well as natural gas operations including pipelines and storage capacity. Providing safe and reliable electricity and gas requires unobstructed access for maintaining power lines, pipelines, facilities and rights of way.
Vegetation growth such as trees and overgrown shrubbery can pose a threat to FPUA equipment, as well as public safety. FPUA uses a variety of environmentally responsible and cost-effective methods to monitor and manage vegetation growth on rights of way. Managing all activities through plan reviews and encroachment removals is another way FPUA protects its right of ways and provides safe and reliable electricity and natural gas.
