How is the power restored?

At one time or another, every electric consumer has had the electricty go out during bad weather. Rayle EMC strives to keep the power on for every member of the cooperative. However, despite all efforts, no utility can guarantee uninterrupted service.

Limbs and trees falling on the power lines are most often the cause of outages in ice, snow or wind storms. In some cases, some part of Rayle EMC’s service area suffers more damage than other areas. Rayle EMC’s lines traverse many miles of rural areas and are exposed to more of nature’s forces than comparable lines in a town or city. Crews are dispatched to each area depending on the amount of outages.
