Don’t Hang Items on Power Poles

Signs attached to power polesApril 1, 2018 – We know it’s tempting to hang signs and other items on utility poles, but there are good reasons why you shouldn’t do so:

  • Attaching signs or other items to poles creates hazards. This puts our workers in danger when they climb poles.
  • Attachments damage poles. They shorten lifespans, which increases maintenance costs.
  • We risk fines from the Oregon Public Utility Commission when items are attached to our poles.

Thank you for helping us maintain a safe, reliable distribution system.
