Piedmont Electric is Prepared for Arctic Temperatures

An unusually cold arctic airmass combined with breezy northwest winds will result in brutally cold wind chill values of 0 to -10 degrees late tonight and Tuesday morning.    Piedmont Electric is on standby and ready to restore power as quickly as possible if outages should occur as a result of the predicted arctic temperatures.  We are carefully monitoring this winter weather system and are prepared for possible power outages.  Because Piedmont Electric is located in the communities we serve, restoration crews are always on-site and can begin restoration work quickly.  Piedmont Electric members are asked to call us directly at 800.449.2667 to report an outage or call 800.222.3107.
