Hurricane Hanna Final Update -July 28, 8 am
Power has been restored to all NEC members impacted by Hurricane Hanna and NEC has deactivated its emergency response plan. NEC line crews continue to address a few additional outages and make further system repairs caused by the storm and its aftermath. As a result, new construction work remains suspended at this time.
We need to extend our deep appreciation to our NEC members for staying positive, patient and understanding during this difficult time. We know how hard it is to bear the loss of power for a short time much less for an extended outage following a tropical cyclone. You all extended such kindness and support for your Co-op team working hard to get your lights on. We never doubted that NEC has the very best members and community, and you certainly demonstrated it through Hanna! Thank you all!
We also have to express our pride in the NEC line workers and the support team that helped them respond to this storm in an efficient and effective manner to serve our members and get your lights back on as soon as possible-with safety as the top priority. They worked long hours, in stormy, wet and challenging conditions to get it done. Thank you, NEC Line Workers & support team for all of your hard work!! You did a Great job!!
