What about members with special medical needs?

Following severe thunder, wind, snow, or ice storms, it’s important to remember damage to SVEC’s distribution system may be extreme. In that case, it could take numerous hours, or even several days, to complete repairs. In case of severe storms, members who must have electricity should be prepared with an emergency backup plan. The plan could include arrangements to move to an alternative location, use of a portable generator, and/or installation of a battery backup on important electrical devices.
