Nelson County, VA
Outage Update – July 2, 10 AM
CVEC crews with the assistance of 50 visiting linemen from sister cooperatives reduced the number of outages to roughly 5200 by late Sunday evening.
Outages remain in all substation areas. In general, the counties of Orange, Louisa, Fluvanna, Goochland, Buckingham, Cumberland and Appomattox have small pockets of outages and individual outages. (A portion of Buckingham served by the Schuyler substation is one exception as well as the Keswick area served by the Zion substation.) We had hoped to have many of those cleared by this morning but more work remains. If you live in one of those counties and do not have power, you can report your outage by using the CVEC automated outage reporting system. Call 800-367-2832. The system will recognize your telephone number if we have it on file or you can use your account number that is printed on your electric bill.
Two substations are without transmission service, meaning that every member served is without power. The Whitehall Substation in Albemarle is waiting on Dominion Power to make repairs and resume delivery of power through their transmission system. 1344 CVEC members are affected. In addition, there was severe damage to the distribution system. Crews are working to make repairs. The Schuyler substation in Nelson County is waiting on AEP to restore transmission service. This substation also serves a portion of Buckingham County, including Yogaville. There is less damage there and many members will have power when the transmission service to the substation is restored. Presently 642 members are without power.
Other Substation areas that have high numbers include:
Piney River substation, which serves up to Long Mountain along Route 60 in Amherst and serves portions of western Nelson County
Martins Store substation with the Nellysford circuit and the Woods Mill circuit requiring additional work.
Midway substation north of Batesville and Red Hill substation south of Charlottesville each have 300-400 members without power
This is not a complete list but one that highlights the larger areas.
