When weather is at its worst, electrical systems are sometimes stressed and broken beyond what our local crews can repair in a reasonable amount of time. Cedarburg Light & Water on behalf of Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin (MEUW) has agreements in place with 82 fellow electric municipalities state-wide to ensure an affected utility has ample resources available to restore electric service to customers.
Our electric crews have participated in several weather disasters state and country-wide. Our crews have helped to restore services lost due to high winds, hurricanes, and tornadoes. We have also benefited by receiving mutual aid from partnering utilities.
