Working in the most environmentally sensitive areas, from private preserves to protected public lands, Probst Electric strives to minimize the impact of its work by limiting the disruption of the natural landscape and returning work sites to their original state.
Probst Electric holds the highest standards of erosion control and utilizing the latest work practices — from the installation of state-of the-art runoff barriers and siltfences to the use of specialized track vehicles with full environmental protections against site contamination to minimize vehicle impact on terrain — Probst Electric leaves work sites in pristine condition, including restoration of natural vegetation, and minimizes the long-term impact of installations through such special efforts as the installation of bird guards on finished projects.
