Assisting Victoria Electric Cooperative

Dear Members,

Please know Sunday morning Bartlett dispatched a three man crew to assist Victoria Electric Cooperative (VEC) with Hurricane Harvey restoration efforts.

Per Bryan Lightfoot, CEO/General Manager who is one of the three on site:

“This area has sustained a lot of damage. VEC had 100% of their system de-energized this morning (Sunday). They have restored some areas as of this evening, but still have a lot of meters without power. 

 The City of Victoria has power restored. However, they currently do not have running water.  The two BEC foremen, Shawn and Kirby did great today. They are having to climb poles because the ground is so saturated that the use of bucket trucks is impossible in many areas. They are very good at what they do and are enduring some less than ideal conditions.

 I will update you when possible tomorrow (Monday).”

 Sincerely,

Your Bartlett Electric Cooperative
