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.
As of December 14, 2016 we are working in the Argentum substation area. This area includes Route 7 towards Shultz, Sunshine, Sheep Hollow, John Will Hollow, Holbrook Hollow, Fire Brick Road, Shultz Road, Jacobs Lane, and Allen Chapel Church Road. A contractor will be working in the Warnock substation areas of Leatherwood, Buzzard Roost to Montgomery, and Big White Oak. 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 .
