Crews from Sister Co-ops Arrive to Assist SVEC

Crews from SVEC and its contractors made significant progress today clearing debris and repairing damage to some of the cooperative’s main feeder lines. Repairing feeder lines is a key first step in the power restoration process.

 These crews will be assisted by lineworkers who arrived today from Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative, Dade City, FL; Pioneer Electric Cooperative, Greenville, AL; Black Warrior Electric Membership Corp., Demopolis, AL; Clarke -Washington Electric Membership Corp., Jackson, AL; Cherokee Electric Co-op, Centre, AL and Central Alabama Electric Cooperative, Prattville, AL.

“Electric cooperatives have a long history of helping each other restore power after storms,” says SVEC’s CEO, Mike McWaters. “We are very fortunate to be part of such a strong mutual aid network.”
