Corn Belt Energy will have a planned outage on Thursday, October 26, impacting approximately 1,964 members in the following areas: Armington, Atlanta, Deer Creek, Delavan, Emden, Hartsburg, Hopedale, Lincoln, Mackinaw, McLean, Minier, Morton, Pekin, Stanford, and Tremont. Due to our transmission provider the feed to five of our substations will be de-energized for approximately 12 hours starting Thursday, October 26, at 12 am. Corn Belt Energy will make every effort to back feed as many members as possible. However, please be prepared for outages during this timeframe. As part of this effort, we ask members to not run any grain dryers and curtail electricity usage as much as possible from 12 am to 12 pm on Thursday, October 26. The result of the work to be completed during this outage will provide a more robust transmission feed and thus improve reliability for our members. If you have any questions in regard to this outage, please contact us at 800-879-0339.
