The outages experienced tonight were caused by lightning accompanying the storm. Lightning caused damage to our system requiring crews to work on various points of impact before all power could be restored a little while ago. Thank you for the patience of all of our customers who experienced an interruption of service tonight.

Although we are not expecting heavy storms over the next few hours, crews will be on stand-by should outages occur at any point through the morning hours. As always, if you experience a loss of power due to the storm, please text or email us at Or call 775-2509.

Have a good night and please be safe on the roads tomorrow morning as there may be some snowfall.
