You can count on YEC to get your lights back on in a storm, but it is important to recognize the work we do to guarantee reliable energy. Providing a level of service that removes the feeling of doubt is our goal each day. We want you to know your lights will come on, your water will be hot, your phones will be charged and, most importantly, the electricity you use is safe. Similarly, in the event of an outage, we want you to have peace-of-mind that your Cooperative will work diligently to restore power.
Continued maintenance on the YEC substations and lines delivering power to your home is necessary to preserve our high standards of service. We are currently rebuilding our India Hook substation located on Mt. Gallant Road replacing outdated equipment where high voltage lines enter the substation, to improve reliability. We are also adding another transformer to the Lakeview substation located on Highway 21 North to increase capacity to withstand the growth in our area. Construction on both locations will be completed this summer. These upgrades also include improved technology to help isolate outages and improve restoration times.
This work, and our unwavering commitment to our members, shows you can depend on YEC–to plan for the future, to put in the work, to keep you updated on your Cooperative, and to look out for you.
