On September 22, crews replaced pole with a woodpecker hole – and this is what they found! While the hole seems harmless on the outside, you can see the damage caused inside the pole – which includes evidence of other animals nesting inside.

AND the pole was only 6 years old!

This is a great example of some of the hidden dangers facing linemen in the field! Thankfully the crew was able to successfully replace the pole before it caused an outage. Great work, crew!

So we should expect on a Saturday night that we will have no electricity? Or is this only affecting your systems that your updating? Just asking for clarification.

Just had our power go out for a few minutes is this part of the upgrade? At 1:47pm Saturday

Is this for real?

I understand maintenance, I appreciate maintenance but why not shut down during daylight hours. My anxiety has already started...my portable oxygen lasts for 2 hours.

UPDATE:
The outage has been restored! 😊

πŸŽ₯ WATCH: Earlier this week, UDWI REMC employees in the Operations Department met with personnel from Hoosier Energy to participate in skills improvement training at our Scotland substation.

Because of their high voltage, substations present some of the greatest dangers to our linemen. ⚠️

UDWI REMC linemen, dispatchers, engineering staff, and information technology employees are provided an opportunity to review procedures and interact with seldom-used equipment. Watch the video below to see our training in action!
