When winter weather approaches, we want our customers to be prepared. Greer CPW has a proactive tree-trimming program, and that means we have high power reliability--even in times of winter weather events.
We have a few suggestions for you as winter weather approaches.
CPW is responsible for maintaining all powerlines up to connection to the home or building. Any damage past that point is the responsibility of the homeowner to repair. This includes a meter base separating from the home due to fallen trees or other damage.
In the event of such damage, CPW will not hook the meter or other wires back up to your home. You must have an electrician repair it, and you also must have an inspection certification from the City. Once the inspection is verified, CPW will turn the power back on to your home.
To contact the City of Greer building codes office, call 864.848.2175.
