The power and gas industry faces a significant challenge: third-party damage to underground and aerial facilities. The estimated national cost of damage to underground utilities estimated by the CGA is over $30 billion annually and that doesn't include aerial damage.
When third-party damage occurs, it can disrupt service to customers, cause costly repairs, and lead to legal liability. In addition, the time and resources required to investigate and recover damages can be significant.
PRG's Outside Plant Damage and Recovery Service can help you recover millions of dollars in damages. Our team of experts has a proven track record of success, and we offer the service at no out-of-pocket cost to the provider.
In one recent case, PRG worked with one of the five largest utilities in the country to improve its outside plant damage recovery program. As a result, the utility saw a 54% increase in captured and invoiced claims and improved the percentage of dollars recovered from 35% to 89%. This led to an additional $50.5 million returned to the client.
