Electric Safety Tip: CALL before you SAW

Last week, an outage was caused when a tree felling operation lost control of a tree and it fell on our electric lines.

Not only does this cause an outage, but it is very dangerous.

The power in your home outlets is 120 volts, but an electric line can be over 7,000 volts. Contact with a line can cause serious injury or death.

If you are cutting trees near our power lines, please call us at 804-333-3621, and we can recommend safety procedures and processes to keep you safe and keep the lights on for your neighbors.

With the Governor's Utility Disconnect Moratorium ending on August 31, there will be an increased risk to members of scams from criminals.

Here are a few reminders on how to take control of the situation when you’ve been targeted by a scammer:
• Take your time. Utility scammers try to create a sense of urgency so that you’ll act fast and hand over personal information, especially over the phone. Take a moment to think about the situation before acting.
• Be suspicious. Scammers typically request immediate payments through prepaid debit cards or third-party apps. Unusual requests like this should raise red flags. Remember, if the request seems strange and out of the ordinary, you’re likely being targeted by a scammer.
• Confirm before you act. If you’re contacted by someone claiming to represent Northern Neck Electric Cooperative or another utility but you’re unsure, just hang up the phone and call the utility directly. You can reach us at 804-333-3621 to verify the situation.

Here's a great way to reduce runoff, save water, and be more energy-efficient.

Do you have a rain barrel at your home?

If you don't, the post below includes free plans to make your own.

Installing a rain barrel is a great way to reduce runoff and save water! Did you know that you can make your own rain barrel using a 55 gallon plastic food-grade barrel?

This complete tutorial from our friends in New Jersey shows you how: https://njaes.rutgers.edu/E329/

Electric Safety Tip: Please never touch downed utility lines or poles.

This past weekend, an outage was caused by an animal. As a result of the outage, the line was knocked off of the pole. A bystander placed survey flag ribbon on the downed line to warn other bystanders. Please DO NOT ever touch downed lines. They may still be energized.

The power in your home outlets is 120 volts, but a electric line can be over 7,000 volts. Contact with a line can cause serious injury or death. Our lineworkers receive years of training and continue to be trained on safety for their entire careers. They are the only ones that should touch lines.

If you see downed lines, please call 911 immediately or call us at 804-333-3621.

TOWN OF WARSAW ANNOUNCES ANDERSON PROPANE EXPANSION

The Town of Warsaw is pleased to announce the expansion of Anderson Propane to 4445 Richmond Road at the former Nunnally’s and River Collision building. The expansion will initially include an investment of $1,250,000 and will include the demolition of the existing building and the construction of a new office space and showroom. A new propane storage facility will be located on-site, with a service area that includes Warsaw, Essex County, and the Greater Northern Neck Region. The showroom will feature fireplaces, outdoor kitchen equipment, and various appliances, with best-in-class brands such as Mendota, Valor, Kozy Heat, Rinnai, and much more. Initial employment figures include 5 full-time employees with additional employees hired once the facility is in full operation.

Nicole Sullivan, Anderson Propane Senior Vice President, stated that “Even in these somewhat trying times, we are elated to cement ourselves in Warsaw and look forward to bringing Anderson Propane to the Region.”

Joseph Quesenberry, Warsaw Town Manager, described this as a project that had been in the works for years. “We’ve had the pleasure of working with the Anderson Propane team for a few years now to have them expand to Warsaw. They’re a reputable company that’s focused both on good paying jobs and strong customer service and we’re very pleased that they chose our Town as their next expansion,” he said.

Randall Phelps, Warsaw’s Mayor, stated that this is another piece of the puzzle in Warsaw’s growth. “This will bring a new facility to the entrance to the Town and will provide additional jobs and an additional service to our residents. I’m pleased to see that our Economic Development strategy is working, and I hope to continue this growth in the future,” he said.

For more information, please contact Joseph Quesenberry, Town Manager, at (804) 333-3737, or by email at [email protected].

The little children enjoyed getting the hats at KVFD Carnival tonight.
Great at announcing the wheel numbers!
I would like to take this time to thank all the Northern Neck Electric volunteers that worked at the Kilmarnock Volunteer Fire Department Carnival tonight. So glad that the Bingo stand was covered and they were able to work the Dime Wheel with us. They were all amazing and myself and the Fire Department truly appreciate your amazing help. They were passing out hats to some of the small children and they really enjoyed that. Pictures to follow. Thank you all again for your help and a fun night at the Wheel tonight.
Can someone tell me why we lost power last night -this morning? It was around 9:45pm -2:30 am.
Thank you. Our power has been restored.
Mr. Rogers said “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” After two tornadoes decimated our property and our homes on Old Farm Lane, you restored a semblance of normalcy and safety. We weren’t there last night, but our game cam captured this photo of you doing what you do best. Thank you.
Thank you NNEC linemen!!!!!
A special thanks to the linemen from SMECO who helped out the effort and got us back on-line today!
Thanks NNEC for restoring my power. Be safe. God bless.
What is up with the power outage?
Thank you for getting our electric back running so quickly. 4 hours after a tree fell on the lines, you had us going again. Couldn’t ask for better service!
