Planned Outage –

Planned Outage June 23, north of Wills Point and Edgwood

Members between Lake Tawakoni and Wills Point, and eastward to Hwy. 19 north of Edgewood will have a short planned outage as crews change electric transmission line routing so that Oncor can make repairs to their lines. The outage will occur at 4:30 in the morning and last about 15 minutes.

Upgrades Continue at Mabank Substation

The second new substation transformer was hoisted into place this week in our Mabank substation. This investment in electrical infrastructure will help deal with increasing load in the area for decades to come.

No additional planned outages are expected for this area, as crews should be able to energize the new equipment without interrupting any service.

Weather Outlook

The upcoming week ahead looks like lower 90’s for high temperatures, but first day of summer and the really hot days are on the way. Have you given your A/C a good check-up to make sure it is ready for summer? Change the filter, clear around the outside unit, check your thermostat settings and, if possible, get a professional to clean coils and ducts for optimum efficiency.

This video is a bit technical, but the simple result is, a capacitor device doesn’t change actual energy consumption.

As the father of a two year old… this time-out chair could be handy.

And, for father’s day.. some dad saves…
