It’s becoming a recurring theme this year:  a small animal scurries into an unprotected substation. Moments later … an expensive — and incredibly dangerous  fire. Take a look at this video of an October substation fire in North Carolina … be sure to watch to the end to see the exploding equipment. The cause: one squirrel. Result: a 12-hour outage, lost equipment, and overnight hours to restore power. Don’t be the next victim. Consider a TransGard fence for any at-risk substation.
