Electric safety is for everyone – whether at home, outside, at work or during a weather event. People and pets must keep a very safe distance from all overhead and underground electric lines and all-electric distribution equipment! And—everyone must make sure ladders stay a safe distance away from any primary or secondary power line!  #MuniPower  #SafetyAlways

Electrical safety is for everyone – whether at home, outside, at work or during a weather event. Check for cracked cover plates around your electric outlets.  Eventually the cracks can turn to chips and expose metal contact points - presenting a shock risk and potential fire hazard.  Don't use the outlet until the plate is replaced.  #MuniPower  #SafetyAlways

The majority of your “energy dollar” goes to purchasing wholesale power from the Texas electricity market. The remainder is spent on the operation and maintenance of the power distribution systems and investment in the capital improvements to the system.  #CommunityOwned  #MuniPower  #AffordableEnergy

It is important to teach children (and adults) to keep a safe distance from all-electric equipment and infrastructure, especially with students being out for the summer. Kids should be reminded to never get near or climb on any equipment or protective fencing and to stay clear of electrical equipment, including electrical poles – wherever they are located.  #MuniPower  #SafetyAlways
