Hurricane Zeta Restoration Update

(JACKSON, Ala.) – As of 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 10, Clarke-Washington EMC has restored power to 98% of our meters across Clarke, Washington, Wilcox and Monroe counties.

We are aware there are members who had to be disconnected in order to make repairs to their service connection. Please call (800) 323-9081 when you are ready to be reconnected.

As we approach the finish line of the restoration process, we would like to thank all the cooperative and contract line workers who selflessly and tirelessly came to our aid in our time of need.

Thank you to our communities for working alongside helping to put the pieces back together. Thank you to those who have provided gestures of thanks, housing, meals, and washing laundry. Thank you to the members for your patience and understanding in the aftermath of Hurricane Zeta.

We are blessed with an outstanding team and a great membership. To all of you we say a heartfelt thank you!
