Keep safety code in mind when making grain bin plans

On the farm, as with any business, safety is important.  Maintaining proper clearance around electric lines is a key safety element.  When moving or building a grain bin, plan for specific clearances required by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the State of Iowa. Eastern Iowa REC and Central Iowa Power Cooperative can help create a safe environment for everyone working and living near grain handling equipment. This diagram shows the specific clearances required by the ANSI and the State of Iowa.  If you have any questions concerning the drawings, please contact an Eastern Iowa member service specialist.
