SLEMCO customers served by the Big Cane and Grand Prairie substations will experience a planned power outage from Tuesday November 17, 2020 at 11:30 pm to approximately 4:30 am on Wednesday November 18, 2020. Transmission lines in the area are being upgraded by power grid owners to increase capacity and reliability. By performing the upgrades now, sudden and more long-term outages can be prevented in the future.
Some 5,700 SLEMCO customers affected by the planned outage are being notified via text messages, emails and/or phone calls so they can prepare. The geographical areas that will be involved include Big Cane, Godeau, Palmetto, Dupont, Bayou Jack, Morrow, LeBeau, Grand Prairie, Tate Cove, Belair Cove, Frilot Cove, Faubourg, Plaisance, the outlying areas of Washington, Beggs and Whiteville.
Since the outage is a planned event, if you are a SLEMCO customer and received notice that your power would be disrupted by these upgrades, there is no need to report a power outage experienced during the hours between November 17th at 11:30 pm and November 18th at 4:30 am.
