Staying safe while keeping the lights on
At American Transmission Co. we are powering through these trying times to help keep reliable electricity flowing to essential businesses, hospitals and homes. As an energy service provider in the Upper Midwest, we are committed to maintaining electric reliability – and we also are committed to keeping our employees, contractors and the public safe.
Recent executive orders in Wisconsin and Michigan include operation and maintenance of electric utilities as essential and critical infrastructure. So, if you see our crews working in your area, please keep a safe distance and know that we are working to ensure the electric transmission system continues to deliver critical electricity to communities.
Our field crews follow the COVID-19 safe distancing practices ordered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state public health guidelines. They also have ceased face-to-face interaction with landowners, communicating instead through phone calls, email and the mail. We are working diligently to help keep the lights on, businesses running and communities strong.
Thank you – and from all of us at ATC, we hope you remain safe and healthy.
