Why We’re Rethinking Rights of Way Management

When these co-ops tweaked or overhauled their traditional vegetation management programs, they got an unanticipated bigger bang for their buck. Find out how integrating mowing, seeding, and spraying strategies to enhance habitat has resulted in long-term cost savings, while increasing reliability.

Now with looming concerns about co-ops’ ability to manage rights of way in light of potential protections given to the monarch butterfly and other pollinators, see how Integrated Vegetation Management can be leveraged to streamline requirements and avoid project delays.

Creating pollinator habitat at substations, community solar, and other projects is also paying off big – not only by benefiting the wildlife, but improving public perception and opportunities to engage the community.
