Planned Power Outage – Sunday, April 24th, 2022 5:45 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

On Sunday, April 24th, 2022, a ten-hour planned outage by neighboring utility NB Power will cut the electrical feed to Eastern Maine Electric’s transmission line serving four of the Co-op’s substations.

As a result of NB Powers outage, there will be an EMEC power outage from 5:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. affecting:

  • All EMEC members in Washington County.
  • Penobscot County EMEC members in the following towns: Carroll, Drew, Kingman, Lakeville, Lee, Mattawamkeag, Prentiss, Springfield, Webster, and Winn.
  • And in Aroostook County, the towns of Bancroft, Haynesville, Macwahoc, Molunkus, Orient, Reed Plantation, and Weston.

Eastern Maine Electric plans to make the most of the NB Power outage by taking care of repairs and upgrades that would otherwise require separate planned outages. We regret the inconvenience this planned outage will cause, but we have been assured by NB Power that it must be done, and that it can not safely be done except in daylight.
