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. Therefore, 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.
Cedarburg has received mutual aid from a partnering utility just once in the past 15 years. However, our electric crews have participated in several other weather disasters state and country-wide since 2000. Our crews have helped to restore services lost due to high winds, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
