Distribution transformers convert high voltage from power plants to a lower voltage to distribute to businesses and homeowners. There are various types of distribution transformers; one type is the pole-mounted transformer. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits and drawbacks of pole-mounted transformers and how Critter Guard’s wildlife control products can help protect your pole-mounted transformers from critters and other wild animals.
Pole-mounted transformers are electric utility distribution transformers fixed on a wooden or concrete electrical service pole at the level of the overhead wires. They are the standard breadbox transformers that convert distribution voltage to the 120/240-volt electricity utilized in households and low-volume business installations in rural areas.
At Critter Guard, we recognize the risks that wildlife can pose to pole-mounted transformers. Fortunately, our Pole Guard, Line Guard, and Bird Bloc products are designed to help protect pole-mounted transformers from critters such as birds, squirrels, snakes, and more that may cause power outages if able to access these transformers.
