98 percent of members have power; work continues in Alachua, Marion counties

Clay Electric’s crews and contract line and tree trimming crews remain fully deployed for final Hurricane Irma power restoration. Sunday, 1,000 crew members from eleven states are finishing the last of the repairs. Crews are also focusing on restoring isolated outages affecting small numbers of members, working to access wet and flooded locations and clearing trees from functioning lines.

Understandably, Clay Electric members have been frustrated by the outages caused by significant infrastructure damage as Hurricane Irma moved through our service territory. Over 161,000 members reported outages immediately after hurricane-force winds left a majority of Clay Electric’s feeder lines on the ground and covered by downed trees and debris.

For the 3,100 members still without power Sunday afternoon, it has been a long week. Restoration efforts have been hampered by flooding, standing water and significant system damage. Earlier this week, Clay Electric estimated to be substantially restored by Sunday night. As of 6 p.m. Sunday, Clay Electric has substantially restored power to all counties except Alachua and Marion, where approximately 2,400 of its members remain without power, according to Clay Electric’s outage map.

All available resources will continue to work until the last accounts are restored.

“We are very proud of everyone’s dedication and commitment in this effort. We realize that this storm has resulted in hardships for Clay Electric members, employees and families that may continue for some time after the restoration efforts are completed,” said Frank Holmes, chief operating officer for the cooperative.
