Scheduled Power Outage - May 23, 2017
Otero County Electric Co-op (OCEC) will have a scheduled electric outage next week that will affect all members whose service is fed out of the Carrizozo and Capitan Substations. The outage will begin at 11 PM on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 and last until 3 AM on the morning of Wednesday, May 24, 2017.
Members in Capitan, Carrizozo, Nogal and outlying areas can expect the outage to last for about four (4) hours, providing crews do not encounter any unforeseen problems.
Crews from both OCEC and Tri-State Generation & Transmission will be replacing insulators inside the substations that have been damaged during past lightning storms, repairing and adding additional switches, and performing other necessary system maintenance to insure the reliability of electric service to members.
OCEC appreciates your patience while these changes are made to help provide more safe and reliable power to you, our members. Should you have questions about this outage, please call 575-336-4550 or 1-800-548-4660.
