Wildlife Mitigation

Wildlife contact with high voltage equipment causes up to 20% of all power outages. The cost impacts of these unplanned interruptions can be very significant for utilities and their connected customers. Impacts can result in significant equipment damage, lost revenue, regulatory fines, and safety risks, just to name a few. Hubbell is focused on providing solutions to prevent these types of outages, protect critical infrastructure and keep the power flowing. By leveraging the team with the best-in-class features of the Greenjacket and Reliaguard brands, we can help you solve the most challenging wildlife problems.

Greenjacket is a custom, made-to-order, precise fit cover-up solution for substations that is made based on the actual dimensions of the underlying equipment. With a fit tolerance of 1/8”, the appropriate air gap built in, and a 20+ year service life, it classifies as a “protection system” and can typically be capitalized just like the expensive high voltage equipment it is protecting. The cover designs are produced from a proprietary, field proven sprayed polyurea formulation.
