Flint Energies Customers Out of Power

There are currently 6231 Flint Energies members at 185 separate locations without power this morning as of 9 a.m.  As damage assessment continues at Flint Energies, the not for profit electric cooperative is estimating full power restoration to take about 36 hours. In the rural area west of Interstate 75, there are several broken poles that will need replacement. Each broken pole can take one crew up to four hours to replace.

That's according to a Flint Energies news release.

Flint has engaged additional contract crews to help in the power restoration. All Flint line crews are on the job and have assignments, according to Sr. Vice President Jimmy Autry. Flint members with Internet service can follow the restoration at www.flintoutages.com which shows the outages in real time. Those reporting power outages should call 1-888-354-6836.
