"The Green Box"
I'm sure you've noticed 'the green box' in a yard or along a roadway. That green box could be a transformer, a sectionalizing cabinet, or a circuit switch. Are they safe? YES, they are safely grounded and do not pose a threat under normal circumstances, but what if you hit one with a lawn mower, tractor, car, or snowplow? There is no way to know if the internal connections were compromised once you have dislodged the unit. If this happens do not touch the unit! Back away from it if possible and if you can't then stay in your vehicle. If you must exit the vehicle, jump as far as you can with both feet together. Please call us immediately so we can come out to inspect and or repair it. Safety is our number one priority and we are more than happy to assist in these situations! Please share this with others as it applies to all utilities.
Thank you to all who attended the 82nd Annual Meeting! We appreciate you taking an interest in your cooperative and look forward to seeing you there again next year!
