GIS Mapping Project
Grayson Rural Electric has begun using a Geographical Information System (GIS) to better serve our members. GIS is a digital mapping system that will give us detailed information about our electrical network. Among other benefits, GIS will help us restore your power more efficiently during outages.
We have contracted Davey Resource Group to conduct the GIS verification and inventory of our distribution system. To create our GIS system, we must do a complete field inventory. This calls for physically visiting and recording information about every pole and meter in our system. During the implementation you may notice representatives from the Davey Resource Group in yellow vests with handheld computers looking at the utility poles and equipment in your neighborhood. They will be on foot, driving trucks or ATV’s clearly marked with Grayson RECC signs, and will carry letters of identification.
We are mapping the Newfoundland substation area as of June 30. This area includes Bruin to Sandy Hook to RT 7, North and South Ruin to ST RT 173, Laurel Gorge area, ST RT 32 to the Rowan County line, and ST RT 504 to ST RT 1620. Please check this page in the future for more updates. Please note that their working hours are different than Grayson RECC’s hours and you may see the personnel from the Davey Resource Group as late as 7:30 p.m. each evening and as early as 7:30 a.m.
Should you have any questions please email Robert Brown, Grayson RECC’s GIS technician, at Robert.firstname.lastname@example.org .
