To Whom It May Concern:

Re: Letter of Reference for D. L. Hannon Inc.,

This is to confirm that D.L. Hannon Inc, has been an approved contractor with the former Stoney Creek Hydro since 1993.

Since that time, they have constructed new 27.6 kV pole lines, performed tension stringing, and completed many 27.6 kV re-build and conversion projects. They presently have a contract with Hamilton Hydro Inc, to complete a pole replacement program throughout the city.

We have been very pleased with D.L, Hannon's performance. They employ competent certified line personnel, and conduct themselves in a safe and professional manner.

Yours truly,
