Sawnee announces new power outage portal

By Ken Stanford Reporter
CUMMING - Sawnee Electric Membership Corporation (Sawnee EMC) recently announced it has completely overhauled the cooperative's online portal which provides real-time information on power outages, including outage reporting and detailed maps. The online portal can be accessed through the corporate web site at www.sawnee.com/outages and via Sawnee EMC's mobile application for smart phones and tablets.

"This is a major step forward for us, but most importantly, for our members" states Michael A. Goodroe, President and CEO. "Nobody likes a power outage, but when one occurs, our members need prompt and accurate information about what's going on and what we are doing to get their lights back on" he adds. "These new tools accomplish this goal".

Historically, Sawnee EMC has only provided "limited" outage information via its web site and mobile application. That information was narrow in scope and lacked many of the cutting edge features that allow for personal interaction by the user. This is all changes as of today. Now, whenever there is an outage event that affects them, Sawnee EMC members can visit www.sawnee.com and click on the "Storm Center" page to find a wealth of information about all current power outages.
