Most Area Residents Should Have Electricity By Wednesday

by Erica Peterson on August 15, 2011

Power should be restored to all but a few Louisville Gas & Electric customers by tomorrow. After the storm hit on Saturday, more than 119,000 in Louisville were without electricity. At 5:00p.m. there are currently more than 20,000 in Jefferson County without power.

LG&E spokesman Chip Keeling says residents should have power by Wednesday at the latest.

“I think we’re going to get the majority of our customers up today and tomorrow and we’ll have some stragglers on Wednesday,” he said. “And when I say ‘stragglers,’ I’m talking about houses where there’s a circuit where there’s a dozen or less on it.”

These are areas with lower population density farther from downtown.
