A few outage essentials:
- The majority of MVEC outages are restored in two hours or less. Keep in mind, there are many factors to consider when estimating restoration time – weather conditions, the time of day or night and the resources required to determine the cause of an outage.
- Sometimes an outage is experienced by the people who provide power to us. When we report a transmission outage, this means a large utility supplying power to one of our substations is experiencing an issue. Sometimes MVEC crews assist in restoring these outages, and sometimes the cooperative has to wait for restoration just like you do.
