SEC Sends Crews North to Aid New Hampshire Electric Cooperative in Storm Recovery
CONTACT: Ronald O. White
CREWE, Va – Six linemen from Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC) are aiding New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC) following devastating storms that ripped through the state overnight on October 29th. SEC linemen are expected to be helping restore power in New Hampshire for the next several days.
At the time of this release, approximately 35,000 NHEC members were without power due to a large volume of downed trees and branches across the company’s service territory. As an electric cooperative, SEC operates according to a set of core principles, one of which is “Cooperation Among Cooperatives.” In this case, sending mutual aid is SEC’s way of assisting a neighboring cooperative.
Southside Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative that serves over 55,000 homes and businesses in portions of 18 counties in central and southern Virginia. Headquartered in Crewe, SEC has district offices in Altavista, Crewe, Dinwiddie and Powhatan.
