To: HILCO Electric Members Re: Planned Outage on August 12th from approximately 8:00 am to 1:00 pm Dear Members, Weather permitting, HILCO Electric will be conducting a voltage conversion on a portion of our lines Wednesday, August 12th, from approximately 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. You may have noticed HILCO contractors in the area over the last six months, changing out transformers and poles. This has been in preparation for the conversion that is now planned for this date. On August 12th, there will be several HILCO trucks and HILCO Contractors in the area. Power will be turned off in sections and restored within 5 hours. Please make sure dogs are secured, and gates are unlocked so that our crews can access transformer and meter locations. The Members affected with this conversion are in the West area, including Tours, Birome, and Leroy. This will include roads and developments in the following locations: FM 2311, Crabb Road, FM 2114, FM 308, Cottonwood Road, Kirkland Hill Road, Czech Hall Road, and all roads in between. The voltage conversion will improve the capacity of our lines to help better serve you our members. Thank you, and we apologize for any inconvenience. Your HILCO Team
