GOLDEN SHORES, Ariz.  Mohave Electric Cooperative crews are currently investigating an outage affecting approximately 900 members.

MEC became aware of the outage at about 3:20 p.m. and crews were immediately dispatched.

The affected area is limited to Golden Shores.

MEC has confirmed reports of some youths flying kites close to power lines and the kites became entangled. As a result, a line did fall to the ground. MEC has received no reports of injuries.

“It’s always important to look up before engaging in outdoor activities such as flying kites or climbing trees,” said Rick Campos, manager of engineering, operations, and energy services. “If there are power lines nearby, it is always the best, and safest practice to move to a more open location.”

Members who choose to leave their homes during the outage are encouraged to call MEC at (844) 632-2667 to request a callback through the automated outage system when power is restored.

MEC recommends reporting your outage 24/7 365 days a year using the Mohave Electric Cooperative toll-free Outage Reporting Line (844) 632-2667. MEC’s automated outage reporting system integrates member information with operations and system information making outage reporting faster and easier for members while allowing MEC to speed up the response and restoration efforts. For outage reporting to work best your member account information must be current. 

Outage restoration is important to MEC and every effort is made to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.
