Appalachian Power sending hundreds to Florida, Georgia

14 Septembre 2017

Appalachian Power has 1 million customers in Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee (as AEP Appalachian Power).

Kraft said it would take at least several days before everyone had their power restored because of the widespread damage.

Channel 2's Aaron Diamant went to the Georgia Power command center in Atlanta where crews are working overtime.

Georgia Power Company (Georgia Power) is a vertically integrated utility providing electricity to retail customers within its service territory located within the State of Georgia and to wholesale customers in the Southeast.

Watkins mentioned that about 139,000 are without power in Atlanta.

"We know that being without electricity creates hardships, and we are grateful for our customers' patience as electric companies work day and night to assess damage and to restore power where and when conditions are safe to do so", Kuhn said.

O'Connell's responsibilities, which included government relations, will now be taken over by Tesla's president of global sales and service, Jon McNeill, the company said.

But the pace of restorations has been slowing, apparently as crews tackle tougher jobs or smaller outages.

Some like Power Line Crew Supervisor Kenney Boone have done this before.

When Matt Sawhill, incoming Statesboro area manager for Georgia Power, said Tuesday he would expect "a hundred percent" restoration of power to customers in Bulloch County by Friday, he was colloquially expressing confidence, not promising 100 percent.

"In some cases they had damage to some of their major transmission lines, which is a much bigger project", he said.

The utility said it is giving highest priority to power outages affecting hospitals, nursing homes and schools, then tackling repairs that will restore power quickly to the largest number of customers.
