Entergy Announces Two Planned Power Outages In Robertson County

Many Robertson County residents should be planning to be without electricity this Friday night.

Entergy has announced a major upgrade to a substation and upgrading 300 transformers.

The project will involve up to 150 employees.

The first of two planned power outages starts Friday at 11 p.m. and continues through Saturday at 7 a.m.

This will impact around 3,500 Entergy customers around Franklin, Hearne, Calvert, Bremond, and Kosse.

The second outage, scheduled for November 9, will affect around 400 customers in the Mumford and Gause communities.

News release from Entergy:

Entergy Texas, Inc. is completing a series of reliability upgrades to improve service to customers across the Hearne, Franklin, Calvert, Bremond and Kosse areas over the next three weeks.

Entergy will be deploying up to 150 employees to conduct a major upgrade to the substation serving the area, as well as upgrading 300 distribution transformers. These improvements will replace older equipment with newer and more reliable equipment that improves service to customers.

For crews to safely complete their work and have as little impact to customers and community activities, Entergy will be required to conduct two planned outages, weather permitting.

The first outage is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 25, 2019 from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., and should affect around 3,500 customers in the Hearne, Franklin, Calvert, Bremond and Kosse areas. Crews will make every effort to complete this work as quickly as possible to limit the impact to customers.

The second outage is planned for Nov. 9, 2019 and will affect around 400 customers along Hwy 190 and FM 50 in the Gause and Mumford communities. Entergy will be contacting customers with additional details prior to the outage.

“We understand anytime without power is difficult and would like to apologize in advance for the inconvenience,” said Stuart Barrett, vice president of customer service for Entergy Texas.

“However, customers will see improved reliability and service as these upgrades are complete”.

Entergy Texas will make every effort to alert affected customers, so they can be aware and prepared. For the most up to date information, customers can visit entergytexas.com/outagemap.
