Why am I the only one with power out on my street?

If you are the only house on your street without power, then it is possible that something has fallen on the service line to your house, or the power to your house comes from a different location than your neighbors. Call Rayle EMC at 706-678-2116 to report your outage and power will be restored as quickly as possible.

How long will it be before my power is restored?

During an outage, Rayle EMC crews are working around the clock to restore power as quickly and efficiently as possible to all customers. The more severe a storm, the longer it could be to restore power. If main lines are down, then they have to be repaired before service can be restored to neighborhoods and to individual homes

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.
