Kentucky Electric Cooperatives is pleased to unveil a new statewide outage map designed for timely and accurate updates to exclusively reflect co-op outages.
The statewide association has worked with the developer of PowerOutage.US collects, records, and aggregates live power outage data from utilities all over the United States, with the goal to create the single most reliable and complete source of power outage information available. To protect the privacy of the utility customers, PowerOutage.US does not collect or sell address or meter level data.
Because our previous co-op outage map relied on data from Kentucky Emergency Management and the Central United States Earthquake Consortium, it often reflected all outages in Kentucky counties, not just electric cooperatives. This new partnership with PowerOutage.US allows us to show only co-op outages.
In addition to a display of existing outages, the new map includes a graph of outages over the last 24 hours, specific per county and coop. Data is refreshed every 10 minutes.
The outage map reflects the 23 local distribution cooperatives that have outage maps.
