The Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA), Region 3, in Lopburi province has developed tools made of zinc to prevent monkeys from electric shock. The tools are installed at electric poles across the province.

The PEA Region 3 has installed the tools after many monkeys died of electric shock. These 1 m. X 1 m. tools prevent monkeys from reaching and climbing to high voltage cables. The PEA Region 3 has also moved low voltage power poles away from high voltage ones.

The PEA Region 3 is putting high voltage electricity wires underground for 300 meters in front of Phibunwithayalai School since electrical accidents involving monkeys often cause power outages in the province.
