From WPOA & CVEC : Planned Power Outages For Wintergreen


Release information from WPOA & CVEC:


“CVEC is continuously working to maintain a safe and reliable transmission and distribution system for our members.

Construction of the transmission line to the Wintergreen substation is progressing well and crews must now change out the poles where the Wintergreen tap connects to the main line. In order to do this safely, CVEC has planned two separate outages* that will affect the Wintergreen, Laurel Springs, and Peggy’s Pinch substations.

The first outage will take place on Monday, July 18, beginning at 11:00pm and will last approximately six hours. A second 6-hour outage will take place on Monday, July 25, beginning at 11:00pm to safely replace additional poles and equipment on the main line.

In the event of inclement weather, the outages will take place on Tuesday, July 19 and Tuesday, July 26, both beginning at 11:00pm.

*Members are encouraged to review and follow the FDA guidelines regarding perishable foods.”
