FLEC is Conducting Pole Inspections


Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative (FLEC) is utilizing a contractor, Power Pole Maintenance Company, to perform pole inspections and some treatment on poles in existing power line easements and rights of way. Contract crews will be working in easements around the Greenback area (and lines feeding out of Greenback around the Craig’s Chapel, Meadow, Maple Lane and Morganton Roads, Foothills Pointe area, and Hwy. 95). Also, we will have contract crews in the Unitia and Big Hill areas (and lines feeding around the Highways 321 and 95 between Greenback and Lenior City). The contract employees will be working at poles in fields, woodlands, yards, and anywhere FLEC has a pole. Please let us know of any hazards that they may want to be aware of around the poles. The Cooperative is required to maintain its poles and other infrastructure on an ongoing basis to meet national guidelines. Through the checks being done, FLEC will have to change out some poles and will have others treated, if necessary, in hopes of getting many more years of service and stretching out the Cooperative’s Membership dollars.
The contractors will be utilizing vehicles marked with “Contractor for FLEC” while conducting the work. At no time should any of these contract employees ask to come into your home. As always, please notify FLEC of any concerns you may have in regard to persons acting on your Cooperative’s behalf. The Cooperative holds the trust you have of our efforts to a high standard and do not wish to ever violate the high ethical standards we have maintained for 78 years.

Any questions can be addressed by calling FLEC’s offices at 1-877-353-2674, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.; please dial ext. 105 and leave a message for Mike.

FLEC is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
