PADUCAH - Jackson Purchase Energy Cooperative has sent two crews to aid a sister Cooperative in Eastern Kentucky in power restoration efforts.

The utility said in a press release two five-men crews went to Big Sandy Rural Electric Cooperative in Paintsville Thursday morning to assist with restoration efforts caused by winter weather that continues to devastate the region.

At its peak, 8,500 of the cooperative’s 12,745 consumer-members were without electricity.  As of Thursday morning, nearly 4,900 remained in the dark.  

JPEC is part of a nationwide network of electric cooperatives that assist each other in times of natural disasters.
