Before 8am on Sunday morning, nearly 4,000 Duke Energy customers lost power around Nations Ford Road and Arrowood Road. Duke Energy officials state there were two separate outages affecting customers in these areas, and the cause for the outage is unknown. Customers stayed without power for a little over four hours until power was restored around noon.
Most energy customers expect to lose power from extreme weather events like hurricanes, thunderstorms, or even arctic blasts. Sometimes, utility companies experience outages for unknown reasons, which makes energy security more important to have. Unpredictable outages can be prevented with energy storage.
