CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman Electric Cooperative and the Tennessee Valley Authority have
scheduled a planned power outage that will impact a large portion of the co-op’s service
area in Winston County and parts of western Cullman County on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020.
The outage is scheduled to begin Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020, at 6 a.m., and could last for up
to eight hours. All Cullman EC members served by the Addison and Helicon substations
will be without power during this time. Some of the communities and areas included in
this outage are Addison, Arley, Helicon, Sardis, Nesmith, Duncan Bridge, Houston, Piney
Grove, Corinth, Moreland, and a small section of Crane Hill including Sulpher Springs.
Members who will be affected by this planned power outage and have a current telephone
number listed on their Cullman EC account will receive a courtesy call this week, and an
additional reminder phone call prior to the event.
The outage is necessary for TVA to perform maintenance on its main transmission line
that delivers electricity to the Addison and Helicon substations. Cullman EC will use this
opportunity to perform maintenance inside the Addison substation as well.
Co-op staff has spent the past several weeks contacting local business and industrial
members that will be affected. TVA and Cullman EC apologize for any inconvenience
this outage may cause.
