Dominion Energy Provides Estimated Restoration Times for SC Counties Most Impacted by Dorian

CAYCE, S.C. (Sept. 6, 2019) – Dominion Energy South Carolina customers in counties most heavily impacted by Hurricane Dorian can now view estimated times of restoration on the outage table at DominionEnergySC.com/ETOR. In less impacted areas, crews are currently working to wrap up any remaining weather-related outages and will address any new outages as crews are available.

Dominion Energy South Carolina had nearly 248,000 customers impacted by Hurricane Dorian, with the hardest hit areas including Charleston, Dorchester and Beaufort counties. Crews in the field began working to restore customers around 3 p.m. Thursday, once it was safe to start the work. As of 9 a.m. today, crews have restored power to approximately 64% of those impacted; just over 90,000 customers remain without power.

“We’re working around the clock and making a lot of progress getting our customers’ power back on, but we still have some without electricity, particularly in the high-impact coastal areas,” said Keller Kissam, president of Electric Operations for Dominion Energy South Carolina. “We’re providing restoration time estimates so our customers have the information they need to plan and take necessary actions to take care of their families, their pets and their properties. We appreciate our customers’ patience and support as our employees continue working as quickly and safely as they can to restore power."

More than 2,800 Dominion Energy South Carolina employees, contract crew members and off-system crews are supporting storm restoration efforts. The company expects to have power restored to approximately 95% of customers in the following heavily impacted areas:
