The cause of the outage is due to a damaged 69-kV transmission line. 

Because of this outage, certain members of the Concho Valley Electric Cooperative are out of power as well.

"We have two substations affected by AEP's outage, the Grape Creek and Carroll Land substations." stated CVEC in a release. "We were able to temporarily transfer the load from the Carroll Land substation to another substation to restore power to a portion of members."

Although this may be good news for some, others are left in the dark.

"Unfortunately, members in the Grape Creek area and north of the Grape Creek area are still without power."

If you are a member of the CVEC and are still experiencing an outage please report it by calling 325-655-6957 or via the SmartHub app.
