Winter Storm Pax is on the way and expected to bring snow and damaging ice accumulations to our area, and Choptank Electric is prepared to respond to our members! A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 7PM Wednesday evening, through 1PM Thursday. As we well know on the Eastern Shore, weather forecasts can change quite quickly, so please be sure to keep an eye on changing weather conditions and consider making your storm preparation plans now for your specific needs.
Should you need to report an outage please call our outage reporting phone number 1-800-410-4790. Please be patient and listen to all prompts before hanging up. Using the outage reporting phone number is your first line of defense in getting your outage reported so we can begin the process of dispatching our crews to your location. While it is our constant goal to prevent power outages, it is also our responsibility to be prepared to deal with power outages as they occur. Getting the power back on for our members quickly and safely is our number one priority!
There is a lot of great information on our website www.choptankelectric.coop related to storm preparedness, as well as our live system outage map, providing current outage information, so please visit often.
