Ice Storm Outage Update - Monday, Jan. 16, 9 a.m.
As of 9 a.m. on Monday, January 16, we have 16 crews working to restore power to members affected by the ice storm. More crews are on the way.
“We have 16 crews working extended hours with more crews expected to arrive soon,” said CEO Zac Perkins. “If your power is out, please report it and we will continue to work toward restoring it. We understand going without power for any length of time is difficult and we appreciate your patience.”
At this time, approximately 6,200 meters in Beaver County and parts of Texas County are without power. Because damage is still occurring, we are staging, framing and working on transmission lines. We will start setting poles and stringing wire after the damage is complete. Because of the wet and muddy conditions, progress will be slow.
If you remain without power in Beaver County, please make plans for an extended power outage which could last a week or more due to extensive ice damage.
We appreciate your patience and ask that you avoid approaching crews as this is unsafe and hampers restoration efforts.
Please use the SmartHub app to report power outages if possible. Phone lines may be crowded due to the number of members affected. To report an outage or speak to a member service representative, call TCEC at 580.652.2418.
