Beat The Peak

Due to the extreme cold, wind, and high demand for power, load control to reduce power use may be necessary through the entire week for members who have load control switches.

This is a result of high demand on the transmission system.

Should load control be necessary, the cooperative requests  members reduce power consumption during peak demand periods (6 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 10 p.m.). 

High winds lead to outages

The storm on Nov. 5 produced high winds leading to power outages across Crawford, Seneca, and Richland counties. The winds brought down trees and limbs which brought down the powerlines. Nearly 500 North Central Electric members were without power, some as long as seven hours.
