When a lightning strike in July 2018 disabled the phone system and radios at Carteret-Craven Electric Cooperative (CCEC), employees in training for a new outage management system were able to keep trucks and crews rolling to outages.

While winter’s cold weather almost always means higher home energy use, the good news is there are tips and tools to help keep your home energy use, and budget, under control, when cold weather strikes:
CCEC members may experience brief outages while crews change out lightning arresters that were damaged during Hurricane Florence.
If you are a federal employee furloughed during the partial government shutdown and are having difficulty paying your electric bill, we will work with you to find a solution.
CCEC members will see a roughly 2 percent increase in bills beginning in January, a result of increased costs of wholesale power and continued compliance costs associated with coal ash regulations.
To recover those costs, CCEC is adding a wholesale power cost adjustment (WPCA) of $2.50 per 1,000 kWh of electricity. The WPCA reflects fluctuations in the wholesale cost of power the cooperative purchases for its consumers and is typically due to changes in the cost of fuels used for generating electricity
When Line Crew Leader Darvene Montford started working for Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op (CCEC), there were no bucket trucks. When underground service became available, the lines were dug in by hand, and if there was a problem with the line, it was dug up, shovelful by shovelful, until the source of the problem was found.
When winter temperatures drop, it can be challenging to stay safe and warm. We don’t usually have winter storms that knock out power in our area, but they can – and have – happened. We care about your safety, and we want you to be prepared.
