~ Press release issued by Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative
ROCKINGHAM, Dec. 14 — With the first winter-weather storm expected to begin late Wednesday, Shenandoah Valley Electric Cooperative encourages members to be prepared in case outages occur, starting with how to report service interruptions.
Forecasts call for a mix of rain and ice, as well as possibly light snow. SVEC crews and contractors are prepared to respond to outages, should they occur. The cooperative remains in contact with weather monitoring services for the latest projections and type of precipitation to be expected.
How to Report Outages
Members can report outages one of three ways:
• Online: Outage Center at www.svec.coop
• Mobile: On the free MySVEC app at www.svec.coop/app
• By Phone: 1-800-234-7832
Members should not report outages over SVEC’s social media channels. SVEC’s operations team must receive official outage notification through one of the three methods listed above.
Additionally, “blinking” of lights may occur, which is a normal condition during a weather event such as this. Co-op members do not need to report blinking lights in these circumstances.
