Animal-Caused Outages

Power quality is a major issue for electric utilities today. Sensitive electronic equipment and computers are a part of daily life and consumers are increasingly critical of service interruptions.

In many cases, outages and nuisance recloser operations are the result of animal contacts somewhere on the system. Although animal-caused outages have been a fact of life for electric utilities since the first line was constructed, until now it has been very difficult to find a source of general information on what methods and products can effectively reduce such outages.

Equally important and often overlooked, is finding a source of general information on the animal behavior that leads to this type of outages.

Hopefully, this site will provide a single source of practical information on preventative methods, useful products, and animal behavior.
