Information Hub: Electric Co-ops and Michael

Electric cooperatives are banding together to respond to the devastation left by Hurricane Michael, which battered the Southeast after slamming into the Florida Panhandle as a Category 4 hurricane. NRECA, statewide organizations and co-ops in the affected states are coordinating with industry and federal government agencies through the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council (ESCC).
