LG&E says power has been restored to all its customers who lost electricity in September 14th windstorm. The company returned to normal operations today, but spokesperson Chip Keeling says crews continue clean-up work.
“This will be work with customers that have their own masthead damage, the pole that’s on the side of their house, that they need to have fixed before we can restore energy to them,” says Keeling, “and just basic clean-up of the areas we’ve been working in.”
LG&E also continues to tabulate the cost of storm recovery. Keeling says officials could have some preliminary numbers in the next few days.
At least part of that cost will likely be passed on to customers through a rate hike. Such an increase would have to be vetted by the Kentucky Public Service Commission.
