General Manager/CEO's Message
Picture of RGEC Headquarters

We're Prepared, And You Should Be, Too.

The year is off to a good start! No ice storms so far, but we have had some harsh wind that has caused some outages. We have staged materials around the service territory in anticipation of potential ice storms, and have all hands ready to respond. No matter how prepared we are, storms are going to do damage. We know what an inconvenience it is to have your power out...especially on a cold night. Rest assured, if it should go out, we will be there to restore it as quickly as possible.
