8:30 am Outage Update

Member outages are now down to 10,200. Crews continue to work in all areas. Each storm is different, but the overall process is the same. Assess the damage, develop a plan, restore power. The weather is beyond our control and their are legal limits that dictate how the right of way is cleared. Amicalola EMC has an average of 8 meters per mile of line. A crew could work for hours and get less than a dozen homes back on. The area is beautiful, one of the most beautiful places on earth, but we pay a price for our rural setting. The challenges are far different than an urban area. The local investor owned utility has about 32 meters per mile of line…. to our 8. We will continue to battle to restore all power as soon as is safely possible. In the meantime, please stay away from any downed power lines and always assume they are still energized. Please call 706-253-0359 OR 706-276-0359 OR 706-864-0359 to report an outage. If you determine those around you have power, be sure to call back to report a second time. Please continue to be patient, and we ask for your prayers for the safety of all our workers and our members.
