We Are Prepared if the Power Goes Out, Are You?

Salem Electric’s goal is to provide members with reliable service, a responsibility we take seriously. To ensure a reliable power system, we maintain a robust vegetation management program, regularly monitor and inspect equipment, and adhere to local weather advisories. Despite our best efforts, some things are out of our control. Snow, ice, high winds, and lightning can seriously damage power equipment. During power outages our crews work around the clock in difficult and often dangerous conditions to restore power. If the damage is severe enough, it could take hours or days to restore power. When that happens, rest assured we are working to restore your electric service as soon as possible.
As winter approaches, we encourage you to be prepared. Visit our outage information page at SalemElectric.com for tips on how to keep you and your family safe during a power outage.
