Power Restoration Complete After Tropical Storm Elsa

Posted: July 8, 2021

SVEC has completed restoration of service to its consumers who lost power because of Tropical Storm Elsa.

“Electricity is a necessary component of our modern lives, and it can be frustrating when it’s not available,” says SVEC’s CEO Mike McWaters. “That’s why we appreciate the patience and support shown to us by our consumer-members after storms like this one.”

Yesterday through today, 90 workers from SVEC, mutual-aid cooperatives and contractors safely restored more than 300 outages that affected over 12,700 consumers.

“I am grateful to all our employees for their dedication and hard work,” said McWaters. “I am also very thankful for the help we received from Bryant Tree Service, Musgrove Construction, Sparks Energy, Talquin Electric Cooperative, Central Alabama Electric and Dixie Electric. At times like this, it’s good to have friends who are willing to lend a hand.”
