Greer CPW Prepares for Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence approaches Greer, Greer CPW is making preparations in advance. Here is what Greer CPW is currently completing.

  • All contractors that work through Greer CPW have been put on notice and asked not to leave our territory until after the storm clears.
  • We have approximately 40 electric department personnel (including contractors) that are able to respond to power outages.
  • Vehicles are fueled and equipment stocked.
  • We have plans to release possibly 4-5 inches of water from Lake Cunningham over a 24-30 hour period.  We are communicating with the Startex-Jackson Duncan Water District who will receive our extra water downstream.  Right now it is not necessary to release water from Lake Robinson.
  • Greer CPW electric customers can report their outage at 864-848-5500 or by logging into their CPW account and hitting “report outage”.
  • Customers as well as the media can view real time outages on the Greer CPW website, www.greercpw.com .  Look for the yellow “electric outage map” tab.
  • Please follow us on social media – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram -@greercpw
