In a recent announcement, first responders have warned residents of Richburg, South Carolina, about a planned power outage this Friday, December 22nd. The outage is expected to begin at 2:00 pm and last for approximately an hour, affecting the entire town.

Redistribution of Electrical Load

The primary cause of the power interruption is due to Duke Energy’s need to safely redistribute the electrical load in the area. The power service provider, Duke Energy, initially planned the outage for 1:00 pm, but the schedule has been adjusted to 2:00 PM to minimize the impact on the residents and businesses. The geographical area that will be significantly affected falls along the Lancaster Highway from Lewisville High School Road to Knox Station Road.

Disruption of Normal Activities

Officials from the Richburg Fire Department have emphasized that residents should expect some disruption to their daily activities. Every light along the Lancaster Highway will be out, potentially causing minor traffic disturbances. It is also expected that gas stations, restaurants, and homes may have interruptions in their operations. Residents are strongly advised to make prior adjustments to avoid inconvenience during the duration of the power interruption.

Preparation for the Power Outage

Citizens are encouraged to prepare for the planned power outage. They should fully charge their electronic devices, conserve power, and consider temporary solutions like portable generators. Extra precautions are also urged for individuals dependent on electrically powered medical devices, with a recommendation for backup power arrangements.

Duke Energy’s Role

As a response, Duke Energy is making endeavors to ensure the swiftest resolution of the outage and restore the power supply in the stipulated time frame to reduce any prolonged discomfort for Richburg residents. The utility provider has issued an apology for the inconvenience caused and thank each customer for their patience during this necessary procedure that will ensure electrical safety and stability.

Final Thoughts

This temporary disruption underscores the collective responsibility of community members, first responders, and service utility suppliers for the broader interest of safety and stability.
