Earlier in December, JOEMC had a planned outage in the Swansboro area to install our mobile substation inside the Swansboro Substation. This work was done so we could replace the current transformer in that substation with a new, larger unit. The outage was necessary at that time so we could safely disconnect the de-energized old transformer and put the new, larger transformer in place.
This work has been completed however another planned outage is necessary so we can safely energize the new transformer and remove the mobile substation. This interruption in electric service will take place on Thursday, December 13, beginning at 4pm. Power should only be out for 30 minutes.
Those members affected by the planned outage should have receive a reminder telephone call from our automated phone system and those members with email addresses on file with us should have received an email.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to provide safe, affordable and reliable electric service to the members of JOEMC.
