From Monday afternoon to Thursday afternoon, Clay Electric has restored power to approximately 108,500 members. Clay’s total restoration workforce will surpass 1,100 field personnel tomorrow.
Thursday afternoon, Clay Electric has about 43,000 (24 pecent) of its members still out of power.
Clay Electric’s district offices will be closed on Friday so all personnel can focus on restoration efforts.
The cooperative reports that it has sufficient numbers of transformers and other repair materials on hand for its restoration effort. The co-op continues to monitor and re-order as necessary and is receiving materials around the clock to meet restoration demands.
“We continue to make excellent progress on the restoration,” said Derick Thomas, director of Clay’s Member and Public Relations Department. “We continue to urge our members who are still out of power to be patient. We’ll get their lights back on as quickly as we can.”
