Reliability & Restoration

Power Outage Map
The online Power Outage Map shows the general location and the approximate number of power outages on Clay Electric’s lines.

Power Restoration Process
Restoring power after widespread outages is a big job that involves more than simply throwing a switch or removing a tree from a line. It involves a huge coordination effort with hundreds of linemen working in very dangerous situations.

Vegetation Management
Trees and tree branches are the most frequent causes of power outages, so trees adjacent to Clay Electric’s rights-of-way must be kept pruned and clear of the power lines to help us provide a safe and reliable supply of electricity to our members.

Storm Center
See the latest co-op news about the storm season, download copies of the Hurricane Preparedness Guide and safety guidelines, and find a shelter in your area.

Power Theft
Attempting to steal electricity by tampering with a meter or equipment is illegal and can get someone killed. It also creates a dangerous safety hazard for the public and Clay Electric employees.

Advanced Meters
In summer 2017, Clay Electric will begin to implement an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), a meter system that will offer members a number of exciting new benefits. Advanced meters use digital technology to read electric use and communicate it to us over a secure wireless network.
