Trees & Power Lines

Tree limbs and branches coming into contact with electric lines are one of the leading causes of power outages. We work year round to trim trees and maintain safe operating conditions.

Any time you see electric lines sagging into trees, laying on the ground or anywhere else they could be touched, please do not touch the lines. Report downed line immediately by calling 1-800-4-NIPSCO (or 1-800-464-7726) 24 hours a day.

Removal of Branches and Debris
When crews work on damaged trees during storms, they focus on repairs that are critical to our facilities and to restoring power. Our crews do not clean up or remove branches and debris that occur due to storm conditions.
