  • Electric crews from Arkansas to assist in recovery efforts in Florida, South Carolina

Crews from 15 of Alabama's rural electric cooperatives are also being sent to help five Florida electric cooperatives with power restoration.

Employees from Dominion Energy and several electric cooperatives across Virginia are heading south to help with recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

Electric co-ops in Louisiana and MS have also returned help in Missouri, helping to restore power after ice storms in 2007 and 2009. Spokesman Michael DeFreeuw said crews have always stepped up when volunteers are needed.

Farmers RECC has been working closely with the Kentucky Association of Electric Cooperatives and with other electric cooperatives to coordinate restoration efforts. Crews will arrive in the damaged areas on Tuesday.

For the thousands of customers without power in SC in the wake of Irma, help is on the way.

Crews are expected to be gone up to two weeks, according to information from Meeker Cooperative.

Alabama's rural electric cooperatives deliver power to more than one million people, or a quarter of the state's population, and they maintain more than 71,000 miles of power lines. A fuel tanker truck from Central Electric Power Cooperative, Jefferson City, will accompany the group headed to Florida to avoid potential shortages en route.

"Indiana's electric cooperatives take care of needs at home first, but our crews are eager to help those in need", Strantz said. These outage numbers continue to decrease, and highlight the resilience, preparedness and collaboration of electric cooperatives.
