Residents in and around the Tupper Substation will not have to go several hours without electricity tomorrow night. Jeff Davis Electric Co-op had announced a planned outage so repair work could be done around the substation. That outage has since been postponed because of the frigid temperatures expected in the area over the next several days.

Officials with Jeff Davis Electric say the repairs will be rescheduled for another time when the weather is more conducive to do so. The outage would have affected these locations:

  • Coushatta Tribe
  • North of Elton
  • East of Elton
  • South of Elton
  • West of Elton
