CN Utility Consulting's benchmarking service is the largest and most comprehensive survey of utility vegetation
management (UVM) in North America. It is a utility company’s best source for comparing its UVM program to those of
its peers and serves the UVM industry as a whole by identifying trends, best practices, and research and development
CNUC surveys a large, diverse sample of utilities, addressing all facets of their transmission and
distribution programs. The results are published for participants’ internal use and also used to support
program and budget validations, rate base arguments, and best practices for field application.
Our most recent study captured the opinions and data of utilities that, collectively, serve more than 60
million customers and manage 4 million square miles of utility lines. The publication, released in July 2010,
also included a state-by-state compilation and assessment of legal and regulatory requirements.
If you would like to participate in our benchmarking service, please contact us.
New participants are welcome at any time. Our goal is to increase the depth and range of industry knowledge by
continually augmenting our sample size and therefore the validity and accuracy of our data. Participants are
welcome to join after surveys have commenced; reports updated with additional data can be released throughout
the year as needed.
Please note all survey participant opinions and data are kept confidential. We do, however,
invite you to view a sample benchmark report.
