‘Thank You’ to Our Public Power Crews

read

With Hurricane Dorian’s arrival, North Carolina public power communities experienced outages across the eastern part of the state, peaking at approximately 32,000 customers without power. Once it was safe to do so, our crews – our hometown heroes – responded, working tirelessly to restore power to our customers. And we’re pleased to report that all were restored by Saturday afternoon, with most restored in under 12 hours. That said, and for all that you’ve done and continue to do every day, a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ goes out to our public power crews who responded to Hurricane Dorian. We’d like to recognize all those public power communities who sent lineworker crews to assist those in need. Thank you for keeping the lights on.
