BEMC AND TOWN OF OAK ISLAND PROVIDE RESTORATION PROCESS DETAILS
Supply, N.C. (8/11/20) – Brunswick Electric and the Town of Oak Island continue to collaborate in their efforts to complete the final phases of power restoration in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaias. With safety and efficiency as top priorities, the process is proceeding as follows:
Brunswick Electric received a list of properties from the Town that were deemed unsafe for utility power, and continues to work closely with inspection teams to disconnect them.
Once these properties are disconnected, the beachfront and second row areas will be re-energized.
The disconnected properties will require necessary repairs and re-inspection before they can be reconnected. This process will continue on an individual, case by case basis until restoration is complete.
“Restoration is always an organized methodical process,” said Josh Winslow, BEMC CEO. “Following this process ensures that undamaged homes in the hardest hit areas are able to receive power, leaving us to focus on the ones that need greater repair soon after.”
