UPDATE: Power Being Restored In The Panhandle After Summer Storm
07/01/2014

5;00pm UPDATE: 5 p.m. update: Power has been restored to approximately 6,300 meters from a high of 9,000 meters since the early morning hours of July 1. More than 2,700 meters remain off with 30 poles replaced today out of the 270 damaged by the storm. Crews will continue their restoration efforts Wednesday morning. Assessment during the daylight revealed additional poles lost and damaged equipment. More damages are expected to be found as assessment and restoration continue.

Members who are without power today should plan for an extended outage and make arrangements accordingly. A large majority of members will see their power restored by the evening hours of Friday, July 4 weather permitting.

“We are making continual progress towards complete restoration,” said Zac Perkins, assistant general manager. “Our number one goal is the safety of employees, members and the electric system. If you are using a generator, be sure it is connected properly to prevent deadly back feed onto power lines.”

Power has been restored to approximately 5,700 meters since the early morning hours of July 1. More than 3,300 meters remain off pending the replacement and repair of nearly 200 poles damaged by the storm.

 Crews from Alfalfa Electric Cooperative, Cimarron Electric Cooperative, Kay Electric Cooperative, Northfork Electric Cooperative, and Oklahoma Electric Cooperative are headed to the Panhandle to assist with power restoration.

“Our ability to recover and rebuild from this storm is greatly enhanced with the help from our fellow cooperatives,” said Zac Perkins, assistant general manager. “We are thankful for member support and understanding during this recovery period.”

 Members are urged to report outages if they have not already by calling the office at 580-652-2418580-652-2418 or using the mobile application for smartphones, TCEC Mobile. Members should consider any downed line energized and dangerous and to report any downed lines to the cooperative.
