Firelands Electric Cooperative will be performing maintenance work Tuesday, July 1, which will result in power outages affecting less than 600 Firelands’ member-consumers located in Fitchville and New London townships, Huron County.
The work is anticipated to be completed between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., with multiple power outages expected during the project. Outages will last approximately one hour, but there will be some areas where power interruptions will last longer. Crews will be transferring some power loads, which will reduce the duration of the outages and number of cooperative members affected by the planned maintenance work.
If crews are faced with extreme weather conditions that require the planned maintenance work to be rescheduled, the rain date will be Wednesday, July 2, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Firelands Electric Cooperative is dedicated to providing its members with reliable electric service. Members are encouraged to shut down their computers and sensitive electronic equipment, and have some type of surge protection or battery backup during these power interruptions.
“We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate the patience and understanding of our membership. This maintenance work will improve the long-term reliability of your electric service,” says General Manager, April Bordas.
As a reminder, outage updates are posted on Firelands’ website, www.FirelandsEC.com, Facebook page and Twitter feed.
Firelands Electric, A Touchstone Energy Partner, is a member-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperative providing electric service to approximately 9,000 homes and businesses in rural areas of Ashland, Huron, Lorain and Richland counties.
