Planned Electric Outage – Wednesday, July 29, 2020
Otero County Electric Cooperative’s provider, Tri-State Generation & Transmission, will be performing some critical maintenance next week. In order to perform this maintenance in our Carrizo Substation, it will be necessary for Tri-State crews to take an outage that will affect the majority of members in our Northern Service Territory, including Alto, Capitan, Nogal, Carrizozo, Lincoln, Ruidoso Downs, San Patricio, Glencoe, Hondo, Tinnie, Arabela and outer lying portions of those locations. This outage will begin in the late-night hours of Wednesday, July 29 at 11 PM and should take approximately two (2) hours to complete, with restoration occurring by 1 AM, Thursday, July 30. We know electric outages are never convenient, but crews will work as quickly as safely possible to minimize the amount of time members are affected.
If you have questions, please call our office at 575-336-4550 or 1-800-548-4660.
