HOW POWER IS RESTORED

Keeping you connected is our goal.

Reliability

REC works hard every day to provide its members with safe, reliable electricity. We regularly plan projects to upgrade power lines. Upgrades can more than double the capacity compared with the old lines. They also improve service reliability. Trees are one of the major causes of power outages in areas with overhead utility lines. We work tirelessly to clear branches near and on-top of overhead lines to provide safe and reliable service.
