EREC Sends Line Crews for Hurricane Michael Restoration

October 12, 2018 — EREC has sent line crews to our sister cooperative Gulf Coast Electric Co-op in Wewahitchka, Florida. Gulf Coast EC’s entire power system is down following Hurricane Michael. Both Gulf Coast EC and EREC are part of the PowerSouth Energy Cooperative family headquartered in Andalusia, AL.​“These power restoration efforts hit close to home,” says Clay Campbell, general manager/CEO. “Cooperatives within our generation and transmission power group were hit hard by this hurricane. These co-ops are an extension of our cooperative family, and we want to do all we can to help them get back on their feet.”

EREC will assist Gulf Coast with power restoration after Hurricane Michael’s devastation. EREC has also sent supplies such as bunk trailers, cots and ice to assist Gulf Coast EC as the rebuilding of their communities gets underway. Our hearts go out to our many fellow cooperatives who were severely damaged after this historic storm.

EREC is a Touchstone Energy® cooperative that distributes electricity to approximately 10,000 members in northern Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida.
