Be Safe Around Pad-Mounted Transformers
The green pad-mounted transformer box safely delivers electricity to homes in neighborhoods with underground electric service. These pad-mounted transformers reduce high-voltage electricity before going to homes. While pad-mounted transformers are typically safely protected, you should take precautions:
Don’t let children touch, climb or play on pad-mounted transformers.
If the box is damaged or opened, never stick anything through the cracks into the box.
Keep areas surrounding the pad-mounted transformer clear so crews can access it.
Keep shrubs and other items at least 10 feet away from the transformer’s doors and four feet away from the sides.
Contact Georgia 811 before digging near a transformer.
Underground power lines can extend in any direction from it and should be avoided or will result in serious injury.
Report problems if you notice a transformer that’s unlocked or in need of repair.
