Any third-party attaching company performing a rebuild of existing plant must submit a Third Party – Rebuild of Existing Plant Application through the online application management tool. Once approved, the rebuild permit will be valid for 12 months. All attachments during the rebuild period must be temporary, using either J-hooks or lagged attachments.
If an attaching company places a second bolted cable on the pole, the company must submit a completed online application for the additional bolted attachments.
Once the old bolted facilities are removed, an online application must be submitted to indicate the attachments were removed from PPL facilities. The attaching company is responsible to pay the attachment rental fees related to both bolted attachments until the removal application is received by PPL Electric Utilities and the second bolted facilities are removed.
All new cables placed on PPL Electric Utilities poles must be marked so they can be clearly identified at ground level.
Removal of Existing Attachments
Any communications company wishing to remove communications attachments from PPL Electric Utilities facilities must perform field work related to removing those facilities prior to submitting a removal application. This includes any bolted attachments, guy wires, cabinets, etc.
Once the field work is completed and the facilities are removed, the attaching company must submit an online application for the poles where attachments were removed. Please ensure the attachment removal box is checked. Upon verification, we will remove these attachments from the billing cycle.
