Officials with Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation now plans the second of two power outages for member-owners in north Livingston County for today, starting at noon and lasting four hours. The maintenance of infrastructure had been planned for Sunday.
"Severe weather is expected this weekend," said Dennis Cannon, JPEC's president and CEO. "In the interest of reliability for our Livingston County member-owners, we are moving the maintenance work up to Thursday. We realize that a daytime outage is less convenient, but the infrastructure in that area will serve our member-owners better if the maintenance work is completed before the severe weather occurs," he continued.
The outage will affect approximately 800 members. All members who receive power from the cooperative's Joy substation and those members who receive power from the Hampton circuit out of the Burna substation will experience the interruption. The affected area includes River Road, Cave Springs Road, Hampton-Joy Road, and Lola Road.
Members who have questions can call 270-442-7321 or 800-633-4044. To see a map depicting the affected area, visit www.jpenergy.com.
