    What’s yours, what’s ours?

    We take the responsibility of delivering safe and reliable service to our customers seriously. While we maintain our electrical equipment and the overhead or underground power lines that supply electricity to your home, there may be electrical equipment on your property that you are responsible for maintaining. If a customer-owned piece of equipment is broken or damaged, you will need a licensed electrician to perform the necessary repairs.
     
    Here’s an easy breakdown of what equipment is our responsibility to maintain and what equipment is yours.
