You’re Not Alone in the Dark

Power outages are never convenient. It takes a lot of hands to keep your power on, and even more hands to get it up and running when an outage occurs. Cass County Electric Cooperative works hard to restore your electric service when outages occur, but there are necessary steps to take to ensure that power is restored to the majority of members as quickly, and safely, as possible.

The "good" power outages

At times, power outages may seem like the bane of an electric cooperative. They can happen unexpectedly, causing inconvenience and a disruption to daily life. Cass County Electric’s line crews and power control technicians work to get power restored safely and as quickly as possible when outages happen. After all, no one likes being literally left in the dark. Like many things in modern life, power outages may seem like a nuisance on the surface, but sometimes they can actually be beneficial for both the co-op and its members.
