Pennyrile Electric Provides Mutual Aid to Georgia Coop
Today, two crews (10 Line Technicians) from Pennyrile Electric will be traveling to Vienna, Georgia to assist Middle Georgia EMC with power restoration. Middle Georgia EMC is a cooperative serving over 8,000 members within a six county service area. Pennyrile Electric personnel will be joining other line crews to restore power to more than 3,000 members who are still without power after Hurricane Irma passed through the cooperative’s service area earlier this week.
Pennyrile Electric President & CEO, Greg Grissom, says, “As a cooperative that has requested help after natural disasters in previous years, we are glad to be able to provide assistance to the people affected by the devastation of Hurricane Irma. As we continue to keep the victims of both hurricanes, Harvey and Irma, in our thoughts and prayers, our focus is to assist with power restoration with safety our top priority.”
Pennyrile Electric crews will remain in Georgia until released by the host cooperative.
