Winter Storm Outage Restoration is Nearing Completion

Winter Storm Outage Restoration is Nearing Completion

As of 6 p.m. Thursday, A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) has restored power to about 2,200 members affected by outages associated with the winter storm.

Crews are still working on just under 70 outages that remain scattered in Northampton and Accomack Counties. Drifting snow on secondary roads remain a hindrance to the restoration effort.

“Our Operations Center will remain open until all the outages have been restored,” said Kelvin Petit, A&N Electric Cooperative Vice President of Operations. “We’re committed to reaching these last remaining outages as quickly as we can and we won’t stop until all our members have been restored.”

Members who have previously reported their outage, but have not yet been restored please report your outage again by using our SmartHub app or by calling 1-800-431-2632. In the event that your power goes out again, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please stay away from all downed power lines. Consider all lines energized, as well as tree or limbs in contact with lines. Report downed power lines to ANEC or call 911. The Cooperative has contracted with professional tree trimmers to take care of those situations. Please do not try to free any wires tangled in tree limbs yourself.

Due to the hazardous road conditions the A&N Electric Cooperative Tasley office will be closed on Friday, Jan. 5th, but our Operations Center will remain open.

ANEC provides electric service to nearly 35,000 homes, farms and businesses in Accomack and Northampton Counties in Virginia and Somerset County, Maryland. For more information, visit www.anec.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
