Winter Storm

Cooperative Warns of Higher Bills Due to Severe Cold

A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) is reporting higher-than-normal energy usage throughout the service area for the first week of 2018.

Since the holiday break, subfreezing temperatures have lingered for days and are expected throughout the month of January. This will force cooperative members to use more electricity to heat their homes and businesses. The Cooperative is warning that the additional energy consumption will lead to higher electricity bills.

ANEC Crews Continue to Restore Scattered Outages

A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC) is reporting that under 100 outages remain during our restoration efforts as of 2 p.m. The outages are scattered in both Northampton and Accomack Counties.

Drifting snow on secondary roads continues to impede our crews’ ability to reach some outages swiftly. Crews will continue making repairs until all power is restored.

“Our crews have been doing a phenomenal job restoring power to members under some harsh winter weather conditions,” said Brian Charnock, ANEC’s Director of Operations and Construction Services.
