Penn Power installing devices to reduce outages

Posted: Updated:
MERCER, Pa. -

Penn Power is working to install 120 Trip-Saver devices on power lines across Mercer, Lawrence, and Crawford counties. 

FirstEnergy said the devices would reduce the number and length of outages.

When a tree limb is removed from a line, Trip-Saver will automatically re-energize the line to prevent an extended outage.

These devices are especially useful to customers in rural and tree-filled areas.
