Saturday afternoon, 93 percent of Clay Electric Cooperative’s members have power. At 3:45 p.m., 12,370 (7%) of its members remained out of power. The cooperative’s restoration workforce surpasses 1,100 field personnel today. Personnel from 11 states are assisting the cooperative.
Clay Electric estimates that restoration efforts will be substantially complete for all members whose homes are ready to accept power by Sunday night, Sept. 17. Some homes and businesses will not be able to receive power due to storm damage or flooding. These homes will need to be repaired and inspected before they’re reenergized.
Members who had their homes or businesses flooded should go to ClayElectric.com and sign a waiver in order to have power restored. See “Release Form to Reconnect Power” on the homepage.
Clay Electric estimates that restoration efforts will be substantially complete by Saturday evening (for those homes and businesses ready to accept power) in the following counties: Baker, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Levy, Union and Volusia.
As resources are freed up in these counties, they are being moved to other counties to assist in the restoration effort.
Clay Electric appreciates the patience of members dealing with the inconvenience of going without power following the destruction brought by Irma.
The cooperative’s six district offices will be open for business beginning on Monday, Sept. 18. Clay Electric is suspending all late and collection fees until restoration efforts are completed.
If a member still does not have power by Sunday evening, they should call Clay Electric’s outage reporting line at 888-434-9844.
