Please be aware that supply chain issues may have a direct impact on new construction and service upgrades for WIEC members. Lead times for many basic items such as secondary pedestals and transformers that are used by the coop are now being measured in months instead of days and weeks that we have been accustomed to. We have been trying to keep material on our shelves by ordering larger quantities of items when they are available or finding comparable alternatives. Even with these measures, there is a possibility of delays. Please note that these issues will not affect the daily operations and maintenance of WIEC’s electric grid. To help minimize these issues, please contact WIEC as early as possible when considering new construction or service upgrades.
