Generator Safety Tips:   


Below is an overview of how Cleco restores power after a storm:

  • Safety is a priority in everything Cleco does.  Once conditions are safe, workers begin to access damage by land and/or air.
  • Next, transmission and distribution lines are inspected and repaired.  Transmission lines are critical because they carry electricity from the power plants to the smaller distribution lines.  Distribution lines carry power to homes, businesses, schools are other facilities.
  • Power is then restored to critical community services first, such as nursing homes, hospitals, police departments, etc.
  • Power is then restored to the greatest number of customers in the shortest amount of time until power is restored to all customers who can receive power.
