El Paso Electric sending crews to help with power restoration efforts in Houston

El Paso Electric (EPE) is assisting with power restoration efforts in Houston after Hurricane Nicholas caused outages affecting more than 450,000 Houston area customers.

“EPE will deploy a team of 19 employees, including 15 distribution line workers, three crew supervisors, and one safety representative. EPE crews are heading out this evening,” officials shared Tuesday.

“EPE thanks our crews for their daily hard work and wishes our crews assisting the Houston area safe travels but especially a safe return home,” utility officials added.

This is not the first time EPE has responded to calls for assistance in power restoration due to severe weather events in other parts of the country.

Officials share that last summer, crews were sent to Albuquerque after a strong summer storm swept through the central area of the state causing over 350 outages.

EPE also assisted in Dallas County, Texas in June 2019 when a major thunderstorm left over 350,000 customers without power and in Florida in September 2017 due to Hurricane Irma.
