Nelson : Central Virignia Electric : Piney River Planned Outage This Weekend



Piney River / Roseland
Nelson County, Virginia


This is a reminder from Central Virginia Electric Cooperative. American Electric Power, our transmission service provider in your area has requested a planned outage beginning late Saturday evening so that AEP crews can replace aging transmission poles serving the Piney River substation. This will improve service reliability for you and other CVEC members.

To limit the outage time for our members, CVEC crews will temporarily switch the load from the Piney River substation to the Colleen substation. You will experience a 1 1/2 hour outage, beginning at 10:00 pm on Saturday, September 24, while CVEC crews make the switch.

When the AEP work is complete, you will experience a second 1 1/2 hour outage beginning at 7:00 am on Sunday, September 25, so that CVEC crews can switch the power feed back to the Piney River substation. (Should AEP crews complete the work well ahead of schedule, we will begin the switching process earlier in the morning.)

CVEC is pleased with this upgrade that will improve service reliability and thank you for your support as a cooperative member.
