TransGard holds the patent on the only substation fencing that delivers a humane—but effective—electric shock that deters animals. Every year, animals cause hundreds of substation power outages that leave thousands without power—and cost millions in repairs. TransGard manufactures and installs the only substation fencing that delivers a humane—but effective—electric shock that deters climbing animals.
The TransGard system was designed exclusively for substations: it’s modular, durable, and installs in half a day without any interruption to power. To date, TransGard has installed its fencing at more than 2,500 substations in every region and climate in North America—substations operated by dozens of major utilities, electric cooperatives, municipalities and other power generators.
