Union Power Cooperative Planned Outage Notification

February 10, 2021

This Saturday, Feb. 13, 2021,we are scheduled to assist Duke Energy with performing essential work on the electrical system that will cause a temporary interruption in service between 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.

We know being without power is inconvenient, and we do not take the decision lightly. Due to the cold temperature, and because many people work from home throughout the week, we’ve taken careful consideration to schedule the outage at this time to minimize the impacts on our members.

Why Are We Planning a Power Outage?

Planned power outages are sometimes necessary to make improvements and repairs to our system. Most of the time, we can do this with no impact on you, but occasionally, we need to interrupt service to allow our crews to work safely. Planned outages are infrequent, and we make every effort to notify members ahead of time and shorten the outage time as much as possible.

How to Prepare

To make the outage time safe and more comfortable for you and your family, here are a few steps you can take:

At Home

At Work

Unless installed by a licensed electrician, standby or portable generators should NOT be connected to any electrical outlet. Failure to install a standby generator safely and properly could endanger you, our employees, or the public.

We are committed to providing you with safe and reliable electric power and energy services and keeping our communities and employees safe. We ask that you be patient and know that we are taking every measure to restore your electric service as quickly and safely as possible, whether the outage is scheduled or unscheduled. If you have any questions, please call us at 704-289-3145.
