Power Outage – 10/14/2021

JPEC Power Outage

Consumer-members out of the Culp substation located near the McCracken/Marshall County line are experiencing an outage at this time, 1,801 consumer-members are affected.  At 8:36 AM Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative outage management software notified of a large outage out of the Culp substation.  Crews were immediately dispatched and upon arrival found a mechanical issue to be the cause of the outage.  Crews are able to temporarily move the electric load from the Culp substation to another location (a process called back-feeding) so the length of the outage is minimized.  Crews will remain onsite making repairs.  Once repairs are complete the electric load will transfer back to the Culp substation.  Transferring the load back to its original location will not produce service interruptions.  Approximate time of restoration for all circuits is 10:30 AM.  We appreciate everyone’s patience.
