2007 Jodie Lane National Conference for Stray Voltage Detection, Mitigation,
and Prevention


Christopher O’Neil P.E. with SEAPOPE Electrical Consulting recently contacted us and requested that we pass this information on. Image


The Jodie Lane National Conference for Stray Voltage Detection, Mitigation & Prevention is an annual event sponsored by Con Ed through EPRI as part of a fatality settlement. 

Topics of interest for presentations include:

• Urban Stray Voltage Events

• Public Safety Technical Issues

• Manhole Events

Background Jodie Lane National Conference is the power industry's attempt at a comprehensive event focused on urban stray voltage and public safety issues! During the conference, representatives from leading utilities and other interested parties across the U.S. discuss distribution performance, incidents that have occurred in their regions, how incidents can be addressed, and what the plans are going forward. This event offers opportunities for workshop attendees to hear the latest information on the subject and exchange ideas on testing and maintenance practices, investment plans and R&D initiatives.

We agree that the press calling hazardous voltages at public accessible locations “stray voltage” has confused the industry.  The term stray voltage, in the press, now encompassed both elevated neutralvoltage as well as hazardous contact voltage due to transient faults at public accessible locations.
