PLANNED OUTAGE: Cullman EC & TVA schedule system work for members on Bremen and Hancville substations

Cullman Electric Cooperative and the Tennessee Valley Authority have scheduled a planned power outage that will impact a large portion of the co-op’s service area the first weekend in May.

The outage is scheduled to begin Friday night, May 5, at midnight and last for up to five hours. All Cullman EC members served by the Bremen and Hanceville substations will be without power during this time. Some of the communities and areas included in this outage include Arkadelphia, Bremen, Catalina Point, Cold Springs, Colony, Country Mall, Dodge City, Loretto, Center Hill, Garden City, Hanceville, Steppville, Stouts Mountain and White City.

Members who will be affected by this planned power outage will receive a courtesy call on Friday, April 28, and an additional reminder phone call prior to the event.

The outage is necessary for TVA to perform work at its new switching station in Hanceville.

Co-op staff has spent the past several weeks contacting local business and industrial members that will be affected. Some businesses with back-up generators may remain open for business during the planned power outage. Some traffic signals equipped with battery back-up systems will remain on during this time. The Cullman County Sherriff’s Office and the Hanceville Police Department will have additional units on patrol and assisting with traffic control where it is necessary.

Cullman EC apologizes for any inconvenience this outage may cause.

Cullman Electric Cooperative is a member-owned cooperative serving more than 42,000 member accounts in Cullman, Morgan, Lawrence and Winston counties.
