With more than 40 years of combined experience in all aspects of electrical substation work with one of the largest electric utilities in the southeast, we specialize in squirrel protection.

Many power outages are caused by lightning and, of course, are not preventable. However, every year squirrels climbing in substations cause extensive and expensive damage as well as power outages...and these are preventable.

There is no practical way to keep squirrels from entering a substation. When a squirrel, standing on a grounded surface, touches energized equipment, the results can be disasterous. Protecting energized equipment from squirrel contacts reduces the risk of forced outages and subsquent damage.

During a ten year period, one large electric utility recorded almost 600 documented outages that occurred as a direct result of squirrel contacts. Recently, a single squirrel contact cost this same utility in excess of $1,000,000.

Unlike other companies, we specialize in the installation of protective equipment while the substation is energized. This means there is no delay while the substation is taken out of service, inconveniencing both the utility and the customers.
