Power Outage

Posted on: May 16th, 2017 by mmillwood

Santee Cooper experienced the failure of a lightning arrester at the Winyah Generating station on Pennyroyal Road this morning at approximately 5:10 am.  This transmission level event resulted in loss of power to both of the City’s substations (Georgetown and Maryville) as well as customers in parts of Georgetown County.  With the problem occurring at the plant, it was able to be isolated quickly and power was restored to all City customers at about 5:30 am.
