Boone Electric Cooperative sends team to help with Irma relief

Boone Electric Cooperative sends team to help with Irma relief

PEC crews are scheduled to meet with Talquin Electric Cooperative, headquartered in Quincy, to restore power at a quicker pace over the next several days.

Some 33,888 households and businesses were reported without power in SC by mid-morning Monday as Hurricane Irma passed to the west of the state.

The Licking-based cooperative said six linemen will assist in clean up and restoration efforts.

"It is incumbent upon us to work together and help one another in times of disaster to make sure our power delivery systems are repaired as quickly, safely and cost-effectively as possible", Gayvin Strantz, vice president of job training and safety for Indiana Electric Cooperatives, said in a statement.

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

Pedernales Electric Cooperative sent staff and resources to Hurricane Irma-ravaged Florida on September 11 to help restore electricity to homes and businesses.

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.

Crews are expected to be gone up to two weeks, according to information from Meeker Cooperative.

More than 60 Lexington County customers served by Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative were among those losing power, down from 640 earlier Monday.

Show-Me State linemen worked their first hurricane in 2004, when Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf Coast. Roughly 785,000 of these are electric co-op outages. The state organization is coordinating the response by Minnesota cooperatives.
