Xcel Energy Distribution Pole Replacement Project: 4/26/2021 – 8/6/2021
Michels Power, a contractor of Xcel Energy, will be in the City of Belle Plaine replacing Xcel Energy distribution poles in the Spring/Summer of 2021. There are approximately 400 distribution poles within the city of Belle Plaine needing replacement due to the structural integrity of the poles. Michels Power will begin replacing poles starting the last week of April and continuing through early August. Michels Power will be calling in locates prior to replacing these poles. For all property owners questioning when their pole(s) will be replaced, the best identifier is a colored ribbon around the pole and flags around the base of the pole. If you see these indicators, it is the intention of Michels Power to replace that pole within 14 days. Upon completion of the pole replacement Michels Power will schedule any necessary restoration with Q3 Contracting, They are Xcel Energy’s restoration contractor. Please reach out to Xcel Energy, Community Relations Manager, Trisha Duncan with any questions. Trisha can be reached at 612-227-8880 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
