Summer Safety Tips

With the arrival of warmer weather and more children playing outside, here are a few tips to be sure your children and grandchildren know how to stay safe during outdoor play.

  • Never climb a utility pole.
  • Don't play on or around pad-mounted electrical equipment.
  • Never climb trees under power lines. Even if power lines aren't touching the tree, they could touch when more weight is added to a branch.
  • Fly kites and model airplaines away from trees and overhead power lines.
  • Never go into an electric substation, which contains high-voltage equipment that can kill.
  • Look up and around you. Always know where power lines are located, particularly when using long metal tools, such as ladders and pool skimmers.
  • Water and electricity don't mix. Keep electronics and radios away from pools and hot tubs.
  • Never touch an electrical appliance if you are wet. Always dry off completely before handling electrical devices.


The City of Tell City is in the process of a proposed annexation. Should this annexation be passed, the service boundary of Tell City Electric Department will change.

Currently Southern Indiana Power (SIP) is serving a majority of the homes and businesses in the proposed annexation area. Tell City Electric Department has reached an agreement with SIP whereby Tell City Electric Department will provide service to 38 customers in the proposed annexation area.

By State Statute, Tell City Electric Department has three years to provide service to these 38 customers. We are planning to have electric service to these customers within two years.
