Clay Electric will conclude its restoration efforts this evening by 10 p.m., having restored power to more than 73,000 members in a three-day period beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8. The cooperative has ended its Emergency Operation Plan status and is returning to normal operating activities.
A combined workforce of more than 150 Clay Electric personnel and 650 construction and right of way personnel from other electric co-ops and contractors from around the Southeastern U.S. were involved in the restoration effort.
“We appreciate all the hard work from our personnel and those who came to help us in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew,” said General Manager/CEO Ricky Davis. “We also appreciate the patience of our members during this difficult and challenging ordeal, and all the kind words of support expressed by our members.”
