Don’t Hang Items on Power Poles

Signs attached to power polesWe 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.
