A tree fell along Hwy 641 N at Pete Valentine Road. It took out a couple spans of three phase lines. Most of the power has been restored along 641 N and Hwy 140 E. A small portion around the Pete Valentine area will be out while we repair the lines. Thank you!
Trees are one of the major causes of electric outages, and our Right-of-Way crews work hard to combat the threat of trees. Our Right-of-Way crews work year-round to tackle tree issues to ensure reliable electric service. Right-of-Way crews also play a pivotal role in restoration efforts after storms take out power. #PUBLICPOWERWEEK
