Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative announced today on their website and in text messages to customers that Ocracoke and Hatteras islands will be on generator power this afternoon (Friday, Dec. 11).

No specific start time was listed, but according to the information available, brief outages may be possible during this work, which should last a couple of hours.

The shift is required as  part of the work that CHEC is doing to relocate its power lines in preparation for the start of construction on the Bonner Bridge replacement.

Information on the CHEC website noted that if customers’ power does not return after the planned maintenance, call 866 511-9862.
