Reminder about Portable Generators (and Update on Power Outage Response)


AEP is reminding neighbors to place portable or RV generators in a cool, dry, well ventilated, outdoor location. Do not plug the generator into your circuit box. Portable generators “backfeed” electricity up the line and risk the lives of repair workers and the public. Crews say to follow the manufacturers’ instructions carefully and plug essential appliances directly into the generator.
