Budget Now for Underground Power Lines (News Release)

If you're planning major renovations on your farm, consider the possibility of installing underground power lines.

Today's farm machinery is bigger and taller, making the danger of working around electric lines greater than ever. Tall equipment that you regularly use, like portable grain augers, easily can contact power lines, especially around grain bins.

Underground power lines will make your workplace safer, and save time and worry.
