Clay Electric crews head north to provide storm relief

Clay Electric Cooperative is sending 14 personnel, along with seven construction vehicles and two support vehicles, to Charlotte, N.C. in advance of a major winter storm that is expected to hit that region with ice and snow.

The crews left Keystone Heights this morning around 8 a.m. following a request from Union Power Cooperative in Monroe, N.C. for assistance should the storm cause massive power outages.

Clay’s crews will drive to a staging area near Charlotte, where they will prepare to help Union Power personnel begin restoration efforts once the storm subsides. The crews are being assembled in advance of the storm’s arrival due to the likelihood the storm will halt highway travel for several days.

The length of time Clay’s crews are in North Carolina depends on the severity of the storm and the amount of damage it causes.
