Dakota Electric is conducting transformer maintenance in specific areas, identified by assessments or member requests regarding rust. This involves inspections and maintenance of transformers and switchgear. To maintain optimal safety and accessibility, we adhere to strict clearance specifications around transformers. We understand that these specifications may not always be readily apparent to members, as stickers indicating clearance requirements can degrade over time. We’re taking proactive measures to ensure compliance and safety, including repainting streetlight posts affected by fiberglass blooming (white or gray spots).

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to improve the reliability and longevity of our electrical infrastructure. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the upcoming work, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your continued support.
