Duke Energy makes progress following Indiana storm

PLAINFIELD, INDIANA - Duke Energy is still making repairs following high winds that accompanied the storms caused extensive damage to the power infrastructure, resulting in outages in virtually every district of the state.

The hardest hit areas of Clinton, Greencastle, and Terre Haute experienced scattered outages July 24. Outages in other areas were restored earlier.

“The problem with this storm is not so much the number of customers affected, but rather the unusually large number of individual problems,” said Duke Energy Indiana President Jim Stanley. “This makes power restoration slower than normal. We’ve made arrangements for 350 contractors to supplement our work force and speed up the restoration process.”

Duke EnergyÂ’s Indiana operations provide approximately 7,300 megawatts of safe, reliable and competitively priced electricity to more than 780,000 electric customers, making it the stateÂ’s largest electric supplier.
