After 11 days, all residential power outages are restored

Power came on at the last residence at 10:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 11. Eleven days is a long time to be without power. TCEC values our members and all their kind comments during that time. Any members who do not have power at their home at this time should call TCEC at 580.652.2418 to report their outage.

About 150 nonresidential meters total are still without power today. The remaining outages will continue to be worked over the weekend and in the coming weeks.

Despite muddy conditions, progress continues

TCEC crews and additional crews from other cooperatives and contractors are working to restore power to the remaining homes before the weekend. About 20 residences are without power this morning. We hope to have those restored by the weekend. About 300 total meters remain off.

Crews have replaced approximately 1800 of 2200 damaged poles in the last ten days. That is about 90 miles of line. Considering the muddy conditions requiring some of our equipment to be pulled by tractors and dozers, that is extraordinary. We appreciate all the farmers who have been helping pull our crews.
