Chips Fires causes outage, customers urged to conserve
PSREC switched to backup power and will provide power from its backup system for an extended period of time. Customers are advised to conserve as much as possible during the next few days.
PSREC told customers conserving also will aid in restoration efforts. Customers are asked to disconnect all nonessential electrical loads. Every light and appliance turned off will help PSREC re-energize more of its system. When the power transmission system is constrained, conservation helps keep the electrical system stable and enables the cooperative to serve its customers.
PSREC regrets the inconvenience and thanks everyone for their understanding.
PSREC encourages members to report all outages to its office at (800) 555-2207 and check with local media outlets for updates.
