PLANNED OUTAGE – THURSDAY NIGHT/FRIDAY MORNING APRIL 28/29, 2022 affecting all of Heber, Overgaard, and Clay Springs. Crews are expected to begin the outage at approximately midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. and they expect it to last no longer than 15-20 minutes. NEC is planning to perform routine and preventative maintenance during that time and due to the nature of the maintenance, and the safety of our crews, we will need to take an outage during that time
Although we expect the outage to be short in time, please make sure that you plan ahead for any potential extended outage by following normal emergency preparedness procedures. For example, if you require oxygen or other life saving measures during that time please make sure you have a backup battery or other contingencies put in place, open your refrigerator as little as possible, have fuel for any generators, etc. You can find more emergency preparedness tips from the Arizona Emergency Information Network on their Facebook page, twitter, or at ein.az.gov.
FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR CREWS We request that you make sure your generator has been installed/inspected by a qualified electrician. Generators that are installed incorrectly can back feed into our lines even if they are de-energized and could potentially cause serious injury or prove fatal to our crew members. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the April 28/29 outage, please reach out to us at 928-368-5118 or 800-543-6324.
