Restoring power safely and quickly

Tags: ,

Restoring your power safely and quickly is our goal with any storm. With so many customers impacted by the wind storm on March 8, crews have been implementing a temporary fix to speed restoration for some customers. It’s called “daisy chaining” – and it’s helping to get the lights on quicker. In fact, more than 90% of impacted customers had their power restored Sunday night.

Once all customers impacted by the wind storm have been restored, our crews will work to permanently repair the lines. Until then, you may notice things like a portion of wire secured to a pole or that the power line to your house is now connected to your neighbor.

Don’t worry, you aren’t being charged for the power your neighbor uses.
