B-Y Electric Repair Assistance

Repair crews from Charles Mix and Clay-Union Electric are assisting Bon Homme-Yankton Electric in getting the power turned on to the remaining customers left in the dark by this week’s storm.

B-Y Electric General Manager Stephanie Horst says while damage was spread throughout the system, some of the worst took place in the Mayfield area.

Road conditions are making getting crews to the location of the damage challenging and Horst says B-Y Electric customers have been assisting the crews when their vehicles get stuck.

In spite of being without power for, in some cases, an extended period of time Horst says B-Y Electric customers have shown great patience while waiting for power.
