SBEC is closely monitoring our system during this winter weather event.  A majority of the outage events we experienced last night (besides the wind and tree issues) were related to high electricity demand and overloaded circuits, which with the record cold and members trying to stay warm, is understandable. 

As we go into another cold night, SBEC lineman and dispatchers are prepared to respond to any outages that may occur safely and efficiently as possible.  Please make efforts to conserve electricity, where all possible, by using energy efficient heater settings and turning off any unnecessary loads to help prevent overloaded circuit outages.
