Cleco restores power to 92 percent of customers impacted by Barry

PINEVILLE, La. – July 16, 2019 (9 a.m.) – As of 9 a.m., Cleco had restored power to over 58,000 of the 63,000 Cleco customers who lost power following Tropical Storm Barry.

“Our crews have restored power to over 92 percent of customers impacted by Barry, and they are still working hard to get the lights on for the remaining customers,” said James Lass, general manager of distribution operations and emergency management.

Today, the company plans to restore power to most customers, but expects there will be some scattered outages overnight.  

“At this point in our restoration process, the work we are performing to repair damage is restoring a smaller number of customers, resulting in a slower restoration time,” said Lass.  “We want our customers without power to know, we are still working just as hard to repair their outage and restoring their power is very important to us.”

As of 9 a.m., Cleco had approximately 5,000 customers without power.
