Co-op Members Urged to Report Storm-Related Damage
At this time, the cooperative has completed its outage restoration efforts resulting from damage associated with Tropical Storm Elsa. All power should be restored to co-op members who experienced an outage as the storm passed through the region. If a co-op member continues to experience a power outage, they should report it by using the cooperative’s SmartHub app or by calling 757-787-9750.
