SCE&G Completes Power Restoration Efforts After Tropical Storm Irma

September 15, 2017

Cayce, S.C. (Sept. 15, 2017) – South Carolina Electric & Gas has completed the process of restoring power to customers impacted by Tropical Storm Irma.


On Monday, Sept. 11, Tropical Storm Irma made its way through South Carolina with 60 mph winds and persistent rainfall. More than 154,000 SCE&G customer outages were reported at the peak of the storm, which occurred at 4:35 p.m. Sept. 11. Hardest hit by the storm were customers in the coastal counties of Charleston and Beaufort.


SCE&G crews worked day and night until service was restored to all customers who were able to receive power. Approximately 2,500 employees assisted with storm restoration efforts.


“The morning after Tropical Storm Irma left South Carolina, we had safely restored power to more than 100,000 customers affected by the storm, and today we have completed restoration efforts throughout our service territory,” said Keller Kissam, president of retail operations for SCE&G. “We worked around the clock to get our customers’ homes and lives back to normal as quickly and safely as possible, and we are grateful to our customers for waiting patiently to receive power.”
