(SUMMERDALE, Ala.) – As of 6 a.m., Baldwin EMC announced it has restored power to 25,779 meters. This is approximately 99% of the total outages Baldwin EMC had as of Thursday morning following Hurricane Zeta. The cooperative now has 368 meters remaining without power due to Hurricane Zeta. These numbers may fluctuate as crews are working in the field. This is not unusual during power restoration after a major storm.
Most remaining outages are isolated to the North Baldwin area, where the cooperative’s system received the most damage. Some crews that have been working in the southern and central parts of Baldwin EMC’s territory will now assist crews north of I-10 in the restoration process.
All meters are expected to be restored at some point on Saturday. All Baldwin EMC offices will re-open for normal business hours on Monday, Nov. 2.
