Heavy Snow Causes Significant Power Outages for PIE&G
Press Release - 6:30 p.m. Update
Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op has restored electricity to approximately 4075 services after heavy wet snow fell in the area Sunday evening. Line crews worked through Sunday night and are continuing their efforts this evening.
Approximately 325 services are still out of power as PIE&G crews continue working with additional assistance from outside contractors and Wolverine Power.
The outages affected a large number of individual services requiring the line crews to address each one separately in order to complete repairs. PIE&G will be working into the night again to safely complete restorations to as many services as possible. However, due to the large number of individual outages, members who are still without power this evening should make alternate arrangements for tonight as some services may not be restored until tomorrow. PIE&G apologizes for any inconvenience and extends thanks to members for their patience.
Presque Isle Electric & Gas Co-op members who lose power should contact us immediately at (800) 423-6634 to report outages or downed power lines.
PIE&G reminds everyone to stay away from downed power lines.
