Duke Energy has a series of projects that may cause power interruptions.
A letter from Duke Energy’s Don McDuffy, Director Asset Design, went out to many Fulton County residents who could be impacted by the projects. The letter states that Duke Energy is working on outdoor upgrades to improve energy service and reliability and that you may see crews conducting planning meetings, performing tree trimming or placing lawn flags to identify safe work areas.
The letter goes on to say that if trees need to be trimmed Duke Energy crews will use techniques created by the National Arborist Association and work with a certified Indiana arborist and do everything possible to keep
power interruptions to a minimum while work is in progress.
