Electric Safety

Duke Energy is committed to helping you stay informed when it comes to safety. Electricity is a safe and reliable energy source when used properly. Like any other source of energy, it can be hazardous if used without caution and care. Below are some key tips on electric safety. We also encourage you to take a few minutes to review all our electric safety tips and share them with your family and friends.

Overhead Power Lines

Power lines are not insulated and carry thousands of volts of electricity. Remember:

  • When working outdoors with ladders or other equipment, always know where power lines are located and stay away. 
  • If you see a downed power line, call Duke Energy at 800.543.5599, 24 hours a day. And warn others to stay away as well.
  • Never attempt to move an object (tree limb, kite, model airplane, Mylar balloon, etc.) from a power line yourself; call Duke Energy.
  • If you live in Ohio or Kentucky and plan to cut limbs or trees that are near overhead power lines, call 800.544.6900.

Call Before You Dig

One of the most potentially hazardous situations in residential areas, industrial plants and construction sites is accidental contact with underground electric power lines, natural gas lines, communication lines, and other utility services.

You can avoid this problem by calling an underground line locating service. There’s no charge for the service, and the call is toll-free. Calling before you dig can not only save you money from a damage claim, it can also save your life.
