Outage Update – Monday, May 27, 2024 8:45 PM

11:10 PM down to 579 out now.
9:34 PM down to 76 outages affecting 1,577 consumer members.
8:45 PM We are down to 86 total outages affecting 2,486 members. This number has come down from 8,000+. We know many of you are still without power and our crews are working diligently to restore as much as they can before nightfall.

As many of you know, we have experienced some issues with the outage reporting system. When you call, the outage system predicts the outage and shows it on the viewer, however, today it was not letting the consumer know that the outage was reported for their area. We expect this problem to be resolved. Please continue to report your outages by calling one of the numbers: 706-253-0359, 706-276-0359 OR 706-864-0359

The broken pole count is up to 16, and we know there will be more to come. Here are some updates on new areas and areas previously mentioned.
