Power restored to the nearly 9,000 in Cumberland County who lost service this morning

Volunteer Energy Cooperative has announced that power has been restored to the nearly 9,000 customers who had lost service early this morning in southern Cumberland County.

A failure in a transmission line had led to the loss of service early in the morning. It initially affected about 9,000 VEC customers.

By mid-morning, all but 2,000 customers had had their power restored.

“We apologize for the inconveniences this outage caused,” said VEC Vice President of Operations Clyde Jolley.
