WFEC Outage Update - Jan. 5, 2016

As Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC) crews and contractors continue working day and night to repair damage, they are constantly facing some extremely tough challenges from this very costly winter storm. The number of downed transmission poles and structures has more than doubled since last week, as damage is still being located across the service territory. At the same time, repair costs are climbing rapidly, as WFEC’s preliminary total damage estimate, to date, is approaching $8.9 million.
