Kentucky Power Uses Distribution Automation and Circuit Reconfiguration (DACR) to Improve Reliability
Of course, outages occur for a variety of reasons, including lightning, ice storms and animals. But one of the most common causes of power outages is tree limbs falling across power lines. Just one tree limb can knock out electric service to dozens of families up to several miles away.
That's why Kentucky Power has a comprehensive program to manage trees and brush that grow around power lines - and it has been shown to be effective at improving the reliability of our service to you.
We also have specific guidelines for tree clearing and right of way maintenance on our high-voltage transmission lines to help ensure the reliability of the regional power network.
