GMP needs to take an emergency outage this evening so crews can safely replace equipment damaged by a lightning strike. Customers in Pawlet, Rupert, Wells, South Poultney, the north edge of Sandgate, west edge of Tinmouth, and West edge of Danby will be affected. The work is scheduled to start at 5:30 pm tonight, and is expected to last until 7:30pm.
This work will help to prevent a much longer outage if the equipment were to completely fail before it is replaced. Thanks for your patience!
