Stay safe around pad-mounted transformers

January 18, 2024 – Pad-mounted transformers are large, green, locked boxes that are typically located in residential neighborhoods. Pad-mounted transformers work similarly to the transformers (gray cans) on the top of electric poles. Simply put, they convert higher-voltage electricity to a lower voltage so that it is safe for your home. Pad-mounted transformers work with underground power lines while transformers on the pole work directly with the overhead electric lines.

When it comes to staying safe around pad-mounted transformers, LCEC reminds residents to:

  • Not touch, climb or play near or on pad-mounted transformers
  • Keep surrounding areas clear for easy access by line crews
  • Not plant or dig near pad-mounted transformers
  • Report damaged or unlocked pad-mounted transformers to your electric utility
