REC is closer to complete power restoration
As of 5 p.m., yesterday Friday Dec. 18 Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) had restored service to about 98 percent of member-owners who lost power in this week’s winter storm.
The majority of outages remaining should have been restored by late last night.
In that region, ice-laden trees broke dozens of electric poles and workers continue the repairs.
“The line crews and contractors have worked nonstop since Wednesday,” said Casey Hollins, director of communications and public relations.
“We are grateful for their commitment to getting the lights – and heat – back on for member-owners.”
As a safety reminder, for members who are still without power, please remember to unplug any appliances that might have been on when power went out.
