EREC Sends Line Crews for Hurricane Delta Restoration

On October 11, EREC sent line crews to assist our fellow cooperative, DEMCO, in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana, following Hurricane Delta’s landfall Friday evening as a Category 2 storm. DEMCO is one of the largest electric cooperatives in Louisiana, serving 110,000 members in seven southeast parishes of the state. Delta’s path through DEMCO’s service area left numerous broken poles, downed power lines and thousands without power.

“Our cooperative knows how devastating hurricanes can be on a power system and the communities it serves,” said CEO Ryan Campbell. “We are committed to answering the call when our co-op family is in need. Our linemen are always ready and willing to go the extra mile to help communities get back on their feet after these destructive storms.”

EREC will assist DEMCO with power restoration to their members following Hurricane Delta’s damaging winds and rain. Many of these cooperative areas in Louisiana are still recovering from Category 4 Hurricane Laura’s devastation just over six weeks ago. EREC is committed to helping our fellow cooperatives in their time of need.
