Update: Transgard Systems partners with Energy Reps to cover four states

TransGard Systems, which has installed proven animal-prevention fencing at more than 2,500 substations in North America, announced today it has reached agreement with Energy Reps, a professional sales organization based in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Energy Reps will offer TransGard’s patented substation fencing to utilities, cooperatives and other energy producers in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.

TransGard Systems developed the only substation fencing that deters climbing animals by delivering a mild electric shock — a humane technique that, according to IEEE, offers the most effective barrier against animal incursion. TransGard prevents outages caused by squirrels, snakes, raccoons, cats and a range of other animals.

“With the sustained level of interest in our fences, TransGard sought professional representation in states hit hard by animal-caused outages at substations,” said Bill Reichard, TransGard’s general manager. “Energy Reps has the expertise and the track record to further extend the growth trend at TransGard.”
