Piney River Power Outage – 11/14/17-11/15/17

A MESSAGE FROM CENTRAL VA ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE

CVEC has received another notification from AEP, our transmission service provider, of a required 6 hour outage on the transmission line that serves the Piney River Substation.  This work is essential to maintain safe and reliable power to our consumers.

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 1.5 hour outage, beginning at 11:30pm on Tuesday, November 14, while CVEC crews make the switch.

When the AEP work is complete, you will experience an additional 1.5 hour outage beginning at 11:30 pm Wednesday, November 15, so that CVEC crews can switch the feed back to the Piney River substation.

We appreciate your support as we continuously work to maintain a safe and reliable distribution system for our members.

If you have questions, feel free to contact us.  Thank you for being a CVEC member.
