February 8 (8:45 a.m.) – We hope all our members came through last night’s storm safe and sound, and we thank our crews who worked throughout the night to restore power. The usual culprits – wind and broken poles and tree limbs – were responsible for most of the problems. Additionally, our transmission provider experienced a downed line, but we were able to bring power in using alternate routes. Linemen are out again this morning working to restore power to the 350 or so meters that are still out.
February 7 (11:15 p.m.) – We currently have 22 crews in the field restoring power. About 3,000 of the 4,000 meters currently without power are supplied through the substation being affected by a downed transmission line. We are working hard to bring power in from other substations. Thank you all for your understanding and patience.
February 7 (10:10 p.m.) – There are a number of members without power in a large area near McAlpin. Our transmission provider has a line down leading into our substation that serves that area. We are currently attempting to bring power into the substation through an alternate line.
February 7 (9:20 p.m.) – We are experiencing a number of outages right now caused by the storm. The largest outages are located in the southern part of our service area near Mayo and Branford. Crews have been dispatched and will restore power as safely and quickly as possible.
If you see a downed power line, STAY AWAY! Do not go near or try to cut trees from power lines. These lines may still be energized. Stay away and report to SVEC at 800-752-0025.
