Hurricane Matthew has taken out a major transmission line owned by Duke Power. That transmission line feeds into Wake Electric’s Royal and Louisburg substations, causing outages to 1,600 of Wake Electric’s members. According to Duke Power it will be late Sunday night before the transmission line will be energized. Crews are working to restore power as soon as possible. The easiest and most efficient way to report an outage is through our SmartHub App available for Android and iOS phones and tablets.
