In your neighborhood
You will oftentimes see our linemen and/or contractors working in your neighborhood. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable, efficient energy solutions with exceptional service to our members. One of the ways we provide reliable and affordable power is by maintaining our system. In fact, PVREA has over 4,000 miles of power lines. Tree trimming, drone use and construction projects are a part of our maintenance plans to ensure reliable power service to you, our members. Here is where we're working in your neighborhood. If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-432-1012.
PVREA and our contractor Foothills Energy are working on the following projects:
- Multiple crews continue to work on installing new infrastructure for subdivisions in Windsor, Severance, Greeley, Johnstown, and Timnath.
- One crew is working on a pole and conductor upgrade in the North Wellington area along CR 15. This project is 50% complete.
- One crew is working on a fiber make-ready job in the Livermore and Glacier View area along CR 74E.
Foothills Tree Experts are trimming in the North Fort Collins, Bellvue, and Lower Poudre Canyon areas. This is the last area for 2022 and work is expected to be complete by early October.
We will send postcards to members in anticipation of work in your areas. To view our current map of planned tree trimming, please click here.

Power Pole Inspections
No inspections are currently taking place.
Drone inspections for 2022 are complete.
Drone technology allows us to safely and efficiently look for trees that need trimmed and inspect our equipment.
Fiber Installation - Grid Improvement Project
We use a contractor, MasTec, to install fiber optic cable on our existing overhead power lines and into our existing underground electric corridors. The crews are currently working in the Livermore, Waverly, Wellington, and Bellvue areas. You may see bucket trucks and crews with boring equipment in your area as we work on this project throughout our entire service territory. We will only operate in our right-of-way; if we do not have proper access, we will work with members to gain access. Learn more about this project.
