Electric Cooperative: Convoy of Trucks Headed to SC to Help Restore Power


A convoy of utility trucks and line workers is headed to SC from Arkansas to help the Electric Cooperatives of SC restore power to the more than 52,000 customers who lost service due to Irma Monday.

They are among about 60 linemen from Indiana's electric cooperatives, including two crews from Heartland REMC, who will spend the next two weeks working to restore power to Irma-ravaged areas. Yesterday, six Northern Neck Electric Cooperative linemen volunteered to travel to Excelsior EMC in Metter, GA., to restore power.

While Tallahassee electric crews are now in a holding pattern, they are expected to try to go back out and restore power to residents later today.

"Cooperation among cooperatives is a guiding principle, and Intercounty is excited to be able to help those in need".

The City of Troy and the City of Evergreen have also sent crews to help with Irma power restoration efforts in the city of Green Cove Springs, FL.


But, he said, the crews -who typically serve multiple northeast IN counties, including southern Allen County - like helping storm-torn areas.

Earlier the Missouri crews were committed to two cooperatives in South Carolina, Berkeley and Palmetto electric cooperatives.

Alabama's rural electric cooperatives deliver power to more than 1 million people; they maintain more than 71,000 miles of power line. In the years that followed, Missouri crews, out of harm's way, have become a common sight wherever the hurricanes occur.

Santee Cooper, which services electric cooperatives and the Grand Strand from below Georgetown to Little River at the North Carolina line, reported no outages.

Relief crews are coordinated by the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives, the statewide service organization for the state's electric cooperatives.
