Outage Response

Restoration Efforts Continue, Likely Complete By Midday Tomorrow

A&N Electric Cooperative crews continue restoration efforts on Friday hours after Tropical Storm Michael passed through the area.

The cooperative’s service territory experienced some significant damage to power lines and poles as a result of fallen trees and limbs battered by Michael’s high winds. That damage has led to some prolonged outages. As of 4 p.m. about 900 members remain without power as a result of 80 individual outage events.

Cooperative Continues Restoration Effort

After A&N Electric Cooperative crews worked through the night just under 150 members remain without power as of 6 a.m. due to outages associated with the coastal storm.

“Our crews did a tremendous job tracking down the cause of our outages and restoring power quickly overnight,” said Kelvin Pettit, ANEC’s Vice President of Operations. “All available crews will continue to work through today until all our outages have been addressed.”
