CVEA Dispatches Additional Crews to Assist With Restoration Efforts
CVEA is experiencing multiple power outages throughout the Copper Basin service territory as a result of severe weather and storm conditions. Wet, heavy snow is causing multiple issue with power lines and trees falling into power lines. These situations can cause power interruption and the Cooperative asks that all members are prepared for multiple outages along the system today and tomorrow as severe weather continues.
Due to the increased risk of potential outages from severe weather conditions, CVEA has dispatched additional crews from the Anchorage area to help with ongoing outage restoration efforts. The goal is to help restore power as quickly as possible given the conditions, and ensure the safety of CVEA crews.
CVEA members can get outage information as it becomes available by visiting the Copper Valley Electric Association Facebook page, viewing the Facebook feed on the home page at cvea.org, or by calling CVEA dispatch at 1-866-835-2832. Up to date information will be posted on the voicemail system.
Member are encouraged to contact dispatch at 1-866-835-2832 if you see hazardous conditions or are experiencing an outage in an area not noticed.
The Cooperative would like to thank all members for their patience as we weather this storm together.
