As we watch the weather moving toward Acadiana from the tropical system in the Gulf, we prepare for the potential of power outage. SLEMCO serves many households in our area and they have taken steps to make power comes back on as soon as possible.

“We made preparations early and are ready to handle any scenario that may occur.   Every employee has been put on alert and has been assigned duties both for final preparations and for power restoration should we face extensive outages as a result of the system expected to move into our service area,” said SLEMCO Chief Executive Officer and General Manager Glenn Tamporello.

SLEMCO field crews and employees as well as contractor crews will be stationed at work centers in Lafayette, Kaplan, Crowley and Washington.Outages can be reported by calling 1-888-275-3626 or the main service line at 337-896-5551.
