For three years now, ComEd has used more than 200 goats to help clear vegetation throughout Illinois.

They help avoid outages and service disruptions from overgrown vegetation in hard-to-reach areas near power lines. ComEd said they cut the cost and time required to clear vegetation by more than half and reduce safety risks to workers.
