Transformer at Home?

Working Together to keep Transformers Accessible

Burlington citizens, who own homes or live on developments with a pad-mounted transformer, share in an important partnership with Burlington Hydro.

The neighbourhood counts on Burlington Hydro to isolate and deal with electricity outages swiftly and safely and to pre-empt issues by properly maintaining equipment.

The Neighbourhood also counts on you to adhere to regulations that restrict landscaping or other obstructions from being situated too closely to pad-mounted transformers.

Safe unobstructed access makes a difference

“Unobstructed access to transformers helps to reduce the duration of outages in your neighbourhood. By keeping landscaping and other obstructions outside of the clearance area, you help to keep your family and Burlington Hydro service technicians’ safe.”

Dan Guatto, Vice President, Engineering & Operations
