Thank you for your patience as Clay Electric crews, assisted by mutual aid and contract crews, continue to make the extensive repairs necessary to our distribution system, which was damaged by Major Hurricane Idalia.
Overall, approximately 93% of Clay Electric members have power as of Thursday afternoon.
For our members living in Baker, Levy, Marion and Union counties – we estimate that 98% of homes will have their power restored by 10 p.m. Thursday.
Additionally, we estimate that our members in Alachua and Gilchrist counties will be at the 98% threshold by noon Friday.
For members living in Columbia and Suwannee counties, we estimate a 98% restoration to homes by 10 p.m. Saturday. Notably, a substation in Fort White has been re-energized, which will help lower the number of outages in Columbia County.
Please remember: If you see one of our crews working in your area, give them some additional space. If it’s a two-lane road and you’re unable to move over, we ask you please slow down to a speed that is 20 mph under the speed limit. Our lineworkers are working as quickly and safely as possible.
