Restoration time estimates issued

Clay Electric Cooperative announces that its restoration effort will be substantially complete by Saturday night (Sept. 16) in the following counties: Columbia, Flagler, Lake, Levy and Union.

The cooperative’s restoration effort in Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Marion, Putnam and Volusia counties will be substantially complete by Sunday night (Sept. 17) for all member accounts that are ready to receive power. This excludes damaged and flooded homes.

From Monday afternoon to Friday afternoon, Clay Electric Co-op has restored power to more than 124,500 members. Clay’s restoration workforce consists of more than 1,100 field personnel Friday. Crews from 11 states are assisting the cooperative. 

Friday afternoon, Clay Electric has 27,000 members remaining out of power. That’s 15 percent of the cooperative’s total accounts.

Clay Electric’s district offices will be open for business on Monday, Sept. 18.

The cooperative is suspending all late and collection fees until restoration efforts are completed.

“We know that going without power in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma has been a very trying ordeal for many of our members,” said Derick Thomas, director of Clay Electric’s Member & Public Relations Department. “We appreciate all the patience many of our members have shown the past few days, and we appreciate the kind words many have shared with us.”

If a member still doesn’t have power by Sunday evening, they should call Clay Electric’s outage reporting line at 888-434-9844.
