Greenville Electric Utility System (GEUS), a municipally owned electric utility for the City of Greenville, Texas, recently selected McLean Engineering Company to provide an inventory of its pole attachments, update its pole attachment agreements, and calculate its pole attachment rental rate in compliance with FCC guidelines. (A new maximum allowable rate went into effect this past Friday. Click here and here for more details.)
GEUS is due to conduct a pole attachment count and joint use inventory on its system. GEUS selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to improve billing accuracy and clean up late transfers so unnecessary poles can be removed. As part of the inventory process, McLean is also helping GEUS identify obvious safety issues created by joint-users as well as update the GIS data associated with pole locations and attachments.
McLean works with many municipalities, cooperatives and state trade organizations to navigate through joint-use concerns by providing expertise in all areas related to joint-use matters.
