JPEC Emergency Workers Return Home

February 04, 2011

Jackson Purchase Energy sent 10 line workers to Shelby Electric Cooperative in Shelbyville, Illinois to help restore power to those affected by the ice storm that devastated much of the area Monday night and Tuesday morning. Those workers are now on their way home and are expected to arrive sometime this afternoon.

Shelby Electric Cooperative, a small co-op with about 10,000 meters, had about one third of its members without power. According to Josh Shallenberger, outages were very wide spread and travel was treacherous.
