Central Florida Electric Cooperative Selects McLean Engineering for Joint Use Inventory


Central Florida Electric Cooperative, Inc., of Chiefland, Fla., has selected McLean Engineering Company to provide a joint use inventory on its system.

As part of its joint use attachment agreements, CFEC is due to conduct such an inventory. CFEC 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 CFEC identify obvious safety issues created by joint-users as well as update the GIS data associated with pole locations and the 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.
