AEP Texas continues to restore power to customers across the state

February 18, 2021

(CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – February 18, 2021) AEP Texas continues to make progress Thursday restoring electric service to customers across the service territory. As of 6:30 p.m., more than 88 percent of the customers affected by the load shed event have had their power restored.

AEP Texas estimates that we will restore 95 percent of all customers by the end of day Friday.

Crews will continue to work tirelessly to restore power to all customers who are able to receive it. In some cases, crews are discovering damage to our electrical system from the winter storm that must be repaired before circuits are energized. AEP Texas is utilizing all personnel to address these issues as safely and as quickly as we can.

“We know our customers are braving one of the coldest winter storms our state has ever seen,” said Jeff Stracener, vice president Distribution Region Operations. “Our crews will continue working to keep restoring as many customers as we can.”

Texas will face freezing temperatures overnight again Thursday. In some areas of our service territory, weather conditions may slow the restoration effort.

“We are seeing some areas where this winter storm is presenting a few challenges to our crews, but we are still working,” Stracener said. “We will continue restoring power as long as we can do it safely working in the elements.”

AEP Texas reminds customers to continue to conserve energy. Customers who do not have power are asked to place all appliances in the “Off Position” and disconnect all electronic equipment from electrical plugs. This will expedite the restoration process and protect personal electronic equipment.

Please continue to stay safe. Listen to safety alerts from your local authorities. You can find warming centers around the state at this link https://tdem.texas.gov/warm/ or by visiting AEPTexas.com.
