Storm repairs continue
Monday was a very busy day. Mutual aid and additional contractor crews arrived and hit the ground running. Monday’s primary focus was damage assessment and addressing the already known transmission and primary feeder issues.
Road conditions continued to slow us down but great progress was made. Keyes, Boise City, Felt, Elkhart, Guymon and most of Hooker communities have all been restored. Crews are working to restore power to other areas. Our pole count has climbed to around 800 with 40 of those being transmission structures. A helicopter was used due to road conditions to fly over areas hardest hit.
Expect intermittent outages as repairs are done on the system to safely restore power to other areas. Member support and kind words have been appreciated as restoration continues.
“We still have lots of work ahead and will have more crews arriving today to help assist in the restoration efforts.” said TCEC CEO Zac Perkins. “As roads dry out we will be able to make better assessments and give better estimated restoration times "
