High Winds Causes Power Outages for Great Lakes Energy Members

More than 6,000 Great Lakes Energy (GLE) members are without power due to sustained, high-gusting wind. GLE line crews have been dispatched and are working to restore service for affected members.

Outages are reported across 21 counties throughout the Great Lakes Energy service territory. Areas most impacted by outages are  Allegan, Antrim, Lake, and Newaygo counties. Current outage information by county is updated on the Great Lakes Energy website, www.gtlakes.com, by visiting Storm Central.

Great Lakes Energy members are reminded to stay away from downed power lines and to also stay clear of trees and limbs hanging on the lines. Members using generators should ensure they are connected properly and legally with a transfer switch so they do not backfeed into the powerlines and cause harm to workers. For the safety of our members and our staff, please do not approach or engage with line crews working to restore power.

GLE members requiring power should make alternative plans for overnight accommodation if service is not restored by 11 p.m. tonight. For residents with limited options, Michigan 2-1-1 is a local resource available to connect those in need with lodging, food, or assistance. Visit www.mi211.org to learn more.

Great Lakes Energy members can report their power outage online, on the Great Lakes Energy app, or by calling 888-485-2537.
