Safety Alert: Please Don’t Attach Signs or Equipment to Power Poles

Idaho Power asks customers to keep power poles free from signs or other attachments. Idaho law prohibits unauthorized signs and attachments on power poles.

The nails and staples that hold signs to the poles can cause injuries to our employees who climb the poles to maintain the lines that deliver power to homes and businesses. They also weaken the poles, shortening their lifespan.

If your business or city needs to attach anything to a power pole, please reach out to your energy advisor for guidance.
