Today and Thursday morning (June 3 and 4), FPB Electric crews will conduct scheduled maintenance outages in large parts of our east Frankfort service area. This maintenance is to make system upgrades and preparations for a new substation section.

The areas listed will not completely be without electric service. Some addresses in these areas will be impacted, some will not. One side of the street may be without power, the other side of the street may have power. Some houses will have power; some will not have power, etc. The maintenance will impact between 200-300 customers each day.
The maintenance window will begin at 8:30 AM Wednesday and power should be restored to the affected areas by 11:30 AM. Thursday’s maintenance will be conducted at the same time (8:30am-11:30am).
The scheduled work is contingent on favorable weather. If there is rain, the maintenance may be postponed and rescheduled. We appreciate customer patience during this necessary system maintenance and upgrade.
