CPSO says they have been in communication with Concordia Electric concerning the power outages that Concordia Parish is experiencing

In a statement from Concordia Electric they have stated that the outages are due to a major transmission line being out of service that Concordia Electric receives it’s power from.

Until this major transmission line is repaired there is nothing that Concordia Electric can do to restore power to Concordia Parish.

The power company says unfortunately due to the major transmission line belonging to another company there is currently no expected time frame that could be given on the restoration of power to Concordia Parish.
