97,800 members back on; restoration effort ongoing

At 10 a.m. on Thursday, September 14, Clay Electric is down to 53,700 members still out of power. Our employees are assisted in the field by an additional 900 outside personnel from 11 states to bring as many people back on as quickly and safely as we can.

Line and vegetation personnel from other cooperatives and contractors are assisting our employees in the field today. Our district offices will remain closed to the public today and Friday to allow our personnel to focus on restoration efforts.

We have sufficient materials on hand to repair the extensive damage caused by Hurricane Irma.

We ask our members to please be patient. We are working as hard as we can to move debris away from our lines and rebuild our distribution system. Hurricane Irma caused major damage to our system and it will take time to rebuild.

Our restoration efforts in low lying areas will be delayed due to flooding along Black Creek, the St. Johns River, the Santa Fe River, New River, Olustee Creek and other large tributaries in our 14-county service area.  

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • We encourage our members to be safe when removing debris from their property. Snakes and other animals displaced by the storm and high water are moving around, so be extra careful.
  • There are many low-hanging or downed power lines in our area at this time. These lines may still be energized, so please avoid going near them and never touch them.
  • If you use a generator, know how to operate it safely, and do not hook it up to your home’s wiring system. It could backfeed into our distribution system and kill or injure personnel making repairs.
  • Our outage reporting phone lines have been overwhelmed with calls.

Information and updates will be shared on Facebook and ClayElectric.com throughout the restoration process.
