Pole Replacement Schedule

EQUS will make every effort to notify members of any power outages that may be occurring during the pole replacement process. If crews require access to your property, they will contact you directly. Remember, annual pole replacements help to reduce power outages.

Wish you could move your service or make changes to it?

If EQUS is scheduled to be in your area for a pole replacement, you could save money by scheduling your service move or change in conjunction with the pole replacement program. Please contact your Area Office to find out how EQUS can assist you.
