A little jealous right now. Wish I was there at this moment

Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative and contract crews continue to construct a new overhead line to restore transmission power to Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands as quickly and safely as possible.

Overhead Progress: Crews worked late into the night to connect the new overhead cables to the grid. That work is expected to be complete this morning and the cooperative will begin to energize the new line.

Next Steps: The new line will need to stay energize for several hours while the cooperative tests the cables. After testing, CHEC will begin to gradually introduce electrical load to the line. Resident on Hatteras Island in the villages of Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon and Buxton will experience outages while the cooperative works to take these circuits off of generator power and energize them with the repaired transmission line. The cooperative will work to give these villages notice of impending outages.

Timeframe: The restoration timeframe from this point forward is 1-2 days.

Thank You: There are many people, partners and businesses we would like to thank. We are very appreciative of the support of our members, visitors, cooperative and contract crews and NCDOT.
