    How Municipals and Agencies can successfully negotiate with Electric Utilities on Transmission Right of Way Vegetation Management.


    Cities and agency lands with electric transmission lines are being told by utilities that there is only one solution to meeting NERC and other regulatory requirements. The one solution is clear-cutting all non-compatible vegetation in one cycle.

    Utilities have different departments that service the community/Municipal (Customer Care, Governmental Affairs and Media) and examples of how to look for partnerships with other departments within the utility to help negotiate win-win agreements with the Vegetation Managers.

    A review of NERC and other regulatory issues that affect Utilities will be presented. Different strategies will be presented that can be negotiated to develop a staged approach to meeting utilities needs and the needs of the municipals.

    New technologies will be described that Agencies can request the utility to use in the development of their Transmission Vegetation Management Plan. The new technology can reduce the annual tree removal while meeting the utilities NERC and reliability requirements.



    Nelsen R. Money is President of NRM-VMS, INC. and has more than 39 years of utility vegetation management experience in electric, gas and hydro right of ways. He holds a BS in Forest Management from Humboldt State University. He is a California Registered Professional Forester, ISA Certified Arborist/ Utility Specialist, and California Pest Control Advisor.
