Jones-Onslow EMC is steadfast in our efforts to deliver safe, reliable electric service to our members. In keeping with this commitment, plans and preparations have been made to relocate four transmission poles in the area where the new Publix is being built. In order to complete this process, we will need to have an outage on October 3, 2017, at 8:00 am. Power should be restored within three hours and every effort will be made to reduce the …outage time even further. We have planned the outage during daylight hours to make the work go as fast as possible and for safer working conditions. In case of inclement weather, the outage will occur on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
The affected areas include Topsail Island from 9th Street in Surf City to the south end of the island including East Ocean Road from Holly Ridge south to the island.
A reminder telephone call from our automated phone system will be made to you the day before the outage. Please ensure we have your correct phone number prior to this date. If we do not have your correct phone number, call 910-353-1940, have your account number handy and choose option 2, then listen to the instructions for updating your phone number.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while this work is performed.

Chief Executive Officer
