Gearing up for arctic plunge

Co-op prepares for sub-zero temperatures 

PADUCAH, Ky. (January 28, 2019) – Ahead of the extremely cold temperatures expected in our service area, Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative is taking additional steps this week to be ready to respond to any potential outages.

JPEC always has a crew on standby after normal business hours to respond to unexpected outages. We monitor the weather and staff accordingly.

The National Weather Service in Paducah is forecasting extreme cold for our service area this week, with low temperatures below zero. Monday night, as the arctic plunge begins, JPEC is taking the extra step to send co-op work trucks home with additional crews so they can respond to any potential outages as quickly and safely as possible.

Consumer-members of Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative are encouraged to learn more about cold weather tips, safety information and managing energy use at and on our Facebook page.
