Utility poles owned by Pepco typically have equipment attached to them that belongs to other utilities. Before we can remove an old pole, all utilities, not just Pepco, must first transfer their equipment to the new pole.
The locations of double poles are added to the National Joint Use Notification System NJUNS that is used by the utilities in the District of Columbia and states nationwide. All utilities in our region voluntarily participate in this process to help track the progress of removing double poles.
The equipment typically must be removed in sequential order from top to bottom. Pepco normally initiates the process by transferring our wires and equipment. Generally, the order is as follows:
