STATESVILLE, N.C. – As of 9 a.m. Sunday, 4,500 EnergyUnited customers across the Piedmont are without power.
Davidson County has 3,611 outages, Davie County has 607 outages and Forsyth County has 224 outages.
“At this point in the outage restoration process we need to ensure that we have all of the remaining outages in the system,” said Kathleen Hart, EnergyUnited vice president of customer care. “We are asking that all members who remain without power, including those who have already called, call to notify the cooperative via telephone of their outage. Members may utilize our automated outage reporting line by calling 1-800-EUNITED to report power outages or by calling 1-800-522-3793, where they will be given the option to speak with a customer care representative.
On Saturday, crews were able to restore power to nearly 12,000 EnergyUnited members, repairing and replacing broken poles and downed spans of line in many areas. Today’s efforts will be concentrated in the northern Davidson County area and the cooperative anticipates that the majority of members affected by Friday’s storm will have power returned to them by Sunday evening.
On Saturday and Sunday, EnergyUnited crews were joined by Sumter Utilities, Service Electric Co. and Asplundh Tree Expert Co. In addition, neighboring electric cooperatives from North and South Carolina traveled to the area to join the restoration efforts. Those cooperatives include Blue Ridge EMC, Fairfield EMC, Horry EMC, Marlboro EMC, Palmetto EMC, Pee Dee EMC and Rutherford EMC.
EnergyUnited reminds people to STAY AWAY from downed or sparking power lines and report any that you may see to 1-800-522-3793 IMMEDIATELY.
