Residents in and around the Ebenezer area and in the northern part of Rincon will experience planned power outages over the next few days as Georgia Power upgrades its distribution in that area.

On Sunday, the outage will begin at 9 a.m. for residents along Highway 275 from Long Bridge Road to Mill Pond Road. That outage will include the schools and will affect 139 customers.

The planned outage for April 29 will be for 4th Street from the railroad tracks to Lexington Avenue, including Hickory Knob, affecting 538 customers.
Planned outages in May are for Lexington Avenue, beginning at 9 a.m. on May 4, and for 4th Street from Lexington Avenue to Highway 21, beginning at 8 p.m. The nighttime outage, affecting 16 customers, could last up to four hours while the daytime outage — affecting 694 customers — may be as long as eight hours.

A May 6 outage will start at 9 a.m. and could last for 12 hours. That outage will affect Highway 21 from 8th Street to Highway 275 and Highway 275 from Highway 21 to Mill Pond Road. The number of customers affected is 322.

Georgia Power officials said the first outages in the week were completed ahead of schedule.

Georgia Power is upgrading its system and existing customers should experience a higher quality of service. It also will allow for the addition of new customers in the future, according to Georgia Power officials.
