At midnight this Thursday, April 27, members in Harnett County may experience a short outage lasting approximately one minute. This short blink is necessary to transfer loads to other parts of the system in order to complete transmission line work between our Manchester delivery point and Spout Springs substation. The short blinks will prevent extended outages that might would otherwise occur. Due to the nature of working on the electric grid, these conditions must sometimes occur to continue providing reliable power into the future. We apologize for any inconvenience that may be experienced during these times. Rest assured, looking out for you and keeping your lights on are top priorities of your electric cooperative.

If you need to report a power outage, please visit Central Electric’s Outage Center. Outages can be reported 24-hours a day by calling 1-877-766-6769.
