Fannin County Electric Cooperative (FCEC) has a planned electrical outage for converting voltage as part of the electric line upgrade project north and west of Leonard. This voltage conversion along with additional projects in the area will improve reliability and increase the capacity of our system. FCEC has contracted Southern Electric Corporation of Mississippi for this conversion. The conversion will require switching the transformer voltage at most customer locations which will also require pulling the meters at these locations. The dates of the conversion are scheduled for June 20th and 21st. The conversion will be divided into different sections to shorten the outage times. Power to your location could be out more than once during this two day period. No outage will start before 8:30 a.m. each morning and the outages could last up to four or five hours. The voltage conversion area is shown on the map below. We appreciate your patience during these outages. FCEC and our contractors will do everything possible to keep these outages as short as possible. FCEC will update this notice if any changes are made due to weather or other circumstances.

Fannin County Electric Cooperative (FCEC) has contracted with Southern Electric Corporation of Mississippi (SEC) for line improvement and voltage conversion for the three-phase distribution feeder north of Leonard. This electric line runs from FM 816 west along CR 4850, CR 4830 and CR 4825, north along FM 1553, west along CR 4725, north along CR 4720, west along CR 4730, south along FM 896, west along CR 4670 , Hwy 69 and CR 4960 to CR 4965. The voltage conversion requires replacement of some transformers at individual electric services which will require a short disruption of power for these members. This includes some members on distribution lines (taps) supplied by this three-phase feeder. This is a system improvement project to increase capacity and improve reliability for this area.
If weather permits, the SEC vegetation crews will begin clearing for the line construction on December 10, 2018 and line construction will begin January 7, 2019. We ask that you allow SEC personnel access to all Fannin County Electric Cooperative facilities that are located on or adjacent to your property. We apologize for any inconvenience this important process may cause. You may acquire additional information about SEC by visiting their website at .
