As part of a free program offered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Ben Avon Borough is developing a greenhouse gas inventory and Climate Action Plan. The Climate Action Plan will help us understand the sources of greenhouse gas emissions in our community and develop strategies to minimize our carbon footprint, improve our community’s resilience and preserve our quality of life.

Duquesne Light Company will be in Ben Avon Borough in the coming weeks and months to managing tree line vegetation in order to continue to deliver safe, reliable electricity to our residents. Because tree interference is a top cause of power outages in our region, it is essential that they be pruned and/or removed if there is any potential threatening impact.
Ben Avon residents were notified via door hanger or in person, and trees have been identified with paint. Trees that will be pruned have been marked with yellow paint and trees that will be removed have been marked with blue paint. As the start of their work in Ben Avon approaches, a member of Duquesne Light’s Vegetation Management team will reach out to you for further notification. Please visit the website at https://duquesnelight.com/customer-support/trees-power-lines for more information about Duquesne Light Co’s Vegetation Management Program.
Even in the green phase, everyone can do their part to help us respond to this evolving public health threat. Routine use of these measures by individuals and their families can go a long way to prevent the spread of illness and help us respond to an outbreak:stop-the-spread-of-germs
