VELCO’s transmission corridors must be kept free from hazards and interfering encroachments, and therefore, our easement rights acquired over private properties generally prohibit the placement of structures within the right-of-way, and restrict certain uses of the rights-of-way. VELCO does not routinely grant right-of-way use requests, but will consider only those potential uses that will not interfere with our objective of keeping the rights-of-way free of encroachments, will not pose a safety risk, and those that will not increase the company’s cost of service. 

Please download the Right-of-Way Usage Policy below for a paper application which includes guidelines to follow and an overview of the conditional uses of VELCO transmission rights-of-way.
