Spend your O&M budget wisely
Outside of fuel, vegetation management is the largest O&M expense for most utilities—and it’s no wonder, as climate change has affected the growth, strength, and viability of trees. An article published in Energy estimated that infrastructure expenditures may rise to 25% because of climate change, largely as a result of vegetation management costs.
Make the most of scarce resources and your budget by empowering vegetation managers with insights to make the right decisions. Focus on your mission; we’ll handle the planning. It’s time to modernize vegetation management with Hitachi Vegetation Manager.
