Managing with Herbicides

We use safe and environmentally friendly techniques to manage plant growth.

Overgrown vegetation near power lines and equipment can pose safety hazards and cause avoidable power outages. The use of herbicides is one method we use to control the growth of vegetation in rights of way. These herbicides are some of the same products you may use to control vegetation around your home.

Ensuring that vegetation does not interrupt power to our customers is a priority at Duke Energy. Thatís why we continually research the best technologies and techniques. Our maintenance crews have been thoroughly trained on the proper, safe and environmentally friendly techniques of managing plant growth.
