Don't Bury Critical ComEd Equipment in the Snow

You may have ComEd transformers and/or switchgear on your property that may need to be accessed in the winter. Occasionally after a snowstorm, snow removal efforts will result in buried or blocked access to critical ComEd equipment. Occasionally, a snow plow will move snow into their equipment, damaging it and possibly causing a loss in power.

In order to be able to safely access their equipment if necessary, they need to ensure that there is at least ten feet of open space in front of the equipment's cabinet doors. Additionally, they need a foot of clearance on the remaining three sides of the equipment. If their equipment is buried or blocked, they would require you to remove the snow so that they can access their equipment. This could substantially delay ComEd crews from performing emergency work and, ultimately, result in unnecessary delays in restoring power to you or your neighbor's facilities.

Please remember: when snow removal is necessary at your facility, don't bury or block access to the ComEd equipment that is critical to delivering your power.
