Duke Update III

From 529,000 yesterday at this time to 311,000 customers aint too shabby.

I understand that by the end of today they expect 85% of the 300k left to have power restored.   The bad part is that will be the bulk of the low hanging fruit though.   (That being affected areas or damage that fixing will restore a larger number of homes/businesses).   The remaining <100k will be smaller individual outages at the residential level.   Our neighbor seems to be one of those as they are still running on a generator from time to time.  Those individual outages will remain through next week (or so I hear).

I think we’ll be looking to upgrade our generator.  I found the integration panel that I never installed and will figure out how to get that baby hooked up.
