Grain Bin Safety

Are you planning on building a new grain bin?

Safety should always be a priority when you are working on the farm. So before you start building a new grain bin, Oahe Electric Cooperative would like to provide assistance in the planning phase to create a safe environment for everyone working and living around the grain bins. When building or moving a grain bin, plan for specific clearances required by the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC).

Learn more about required clearances in relationship to existing power lines. (PDF)

Before moving or building a grain bin, contact Oahe Electric at 1-800-640-6243 to help determine the exact distance your facilities need to be in order to be in compliance.
