Power has been restored to the 2,600 Gibson Electric Membership Corp. customer-owners in and around Tiptonville, Samburg, Wynnburg and Phillippy who were affected by a planned outage Monday night.
The outage, which began at 10 p.m. and ended at 11:02 p.m., was needed to make permanent repairs to equipment that failed in Gibson EMC’s Tiptonville substation early Dec. 13.
Gibson EMC vice president of operations Barry Smith said the work was successfully completed, restoring the substation to its normal state. He commended Gibson EMC’s employees who worked hard and efficiently to minimize the outage time and restore service reliability. Smith also thanked customers for their patience.
No additional planned outages will be required.
