Frigid Temps & Increased Load Caused Outages

This morning's freezing temps significantly increased the demand or load on our system and took out a circuit in the Milner substation. Crews have restored power but are now in the process of shifting some of the load to different circuits to increase stability going forward. During this process, members in Milner and along Hwy 41 going toward Pike County may experience brief interruptions but crews are working as quickly as possible to minimize the duration of the outages. We appreciate your patience and cooperation.
