Homes in TCEC service area restored following Winter Storm Jupiter

On Sunday, January 15, TCEC’s electric system was hit by winter storm Jupiter. Storm damages are well into the millions of dollars as the assessment continues. The ice wreaked havoc on trees, power poles and line, transformers and other equipment. TCEC reported nearly 7,000 outages at the height of the storm. Yesterday, crews restored power to those last few homes of members who were still without power. Several hundred other services remain without power.

As of 9 a.m. Wednesday, January 25, a handful of homes and several hundred other services remain without power. Lineworkers from across Oklahoma and other states continue to work on TCEC’s restoration efforts. Crews have rebuilt almost 65 miles of line in 9 days.

RESTORATION UPDATE – TUESDAY, JAN. 24, 9 A.M.

As of 9 a.m. Tuesday, January 24, some members have been without power going on ten days. About 50 homes and several hundred other services remain without power. More than 250 additional lineworkers from across Oklahoma and other states continue to work on TCEC’s restoration efforts. As we work to restore power through the coming week it will be necessary to take frequent, periodic outages, especially in the Balko to Elmwood areas.

“We have made great progress and are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel,” said CEO Zac Perkins.
