Outage Status (7/21/18—9:30pm)

We now have 1126 members without electricity.  Extra crews arrived from different areas of the state today to assist with our restoration efforts.  We have encountered difficult conditions with many spans of wire down, broken poles and problems getting equipment off road due to wet conditions.&n

Outage Status Update as of 6:45 p.m.

We now have 1,904 members without electricity. Additional crews from other co-ops arrived this afternoon. We plan to work throughout the night again. Our expectation is to have all members’ power restored by 9 p.m. Sunday. This could fluctuate with any additional storms or damage. Our real-time outage map shows estimated restoration times and is a valuable resource.

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

Outage Status Update as of 12:50 p.m.

We now have 2,607 members without electricity, down from 4,643 at 8:20 a.m. The outage map is constantly being updated. Additional crews arrived this morning and several are expected this afternoon. 

Stay away from downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

How Power is Restored

We are working to restore power as quickly as we can, but there is a process and the main lines have to be restored first. Think of it as our country’s road system. Interstate 75 has to be cleared for traffic before Nicholasville Rd. Nicholasville Rd. has to be cleared before you start on James Lane.

Stay away for downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous.

 

Outage Status Update as of 8:20 a.m.

We now have 4,643 members without electricity. Last night, we made progress, but conditions made is difficult. 

Additional crews are assisting and we expect more today. 

We hope to make good progress getting all members back on today except for those in the hardest hit areas of Franklin, Anderson, Woodford, and Mercer Counties—which are expected to be sometime Sunday.

Our outage map is currently being updated with estimated restoration times. 

Outage Status Update as of 10 p.m.

We now have 5,840 members without electricity, down from 10,796 at our 6 p.m. peak. 

Our crews are working as swiftly and safely as possible to restore your power. We will remain working throughout the night. 

Outage Status Update as of 7:25 p.m.

Storms are still coming through our area. We now have 9,530 members out in 12 counties which is down from 10,706 at 6 p.m. 

We initially had some estimated restoration times on outages, however, due to increasing outage numbers from the additional storms, those estimations are being adjusted. At the current time, we are not able to predict estimation times due to current damage assessment still in progress. 

If you feel you cannot make it throughout the night without electric, you should make other arrangements. 

Storms and high winds causing outages

Outage Status (7/20/18-4:50 p.m.)

Our service territory has sustained extensive damage this afternoon from storms and high winds. We are still assessing the extent of the damages. After we gain a better understanding of the overall damage, we will then be able to project estimated restoration times.

With more severe storms on the way, we are expecting some outages to be 24+ hours. We will share updates as we learn more.

Stay away for downed lines. Assume all downed power lines are energized and dangerous. 

Setting off fireworks on the 4th? Look for power lines

We know many will celebrate the holiday with fireworks. We want you to have a safe holiday so we reached out to our Safety Coordinator, Matt Thomas, for his advice. Here’s what he had to share with us:

Most people celebrate by watching a local, professional show—supervised by firefighters. But if you’re starting the performance early with consumer fireworks, here are some tips: 

Silent Auction raises $4,169 for the American Cancer Society
