Up-to-date contact information can help speed restoration
WE AT LYNCHES River Electric Cooperative are constantly working to improve our operational efficiency so we can provide the most reliable electric service possible for our members—that’s you!
We rely on data for nearly every aspect of our operations, which is why we need your help. By making sure we have your most accurate and complete contact information, we can continue to provide the high level
of service that you expect and deserve. Accurate information helps us to improve customer service and enhance communications for reporting and repairing outages. It also allows co-op members to receive information about other important programs, events, and activities.
Up-to-date contact information can potentially speed up the power restoration process during an outage. For example, the phone number you provide is linked to your service address in our outage management system. This means when you call to report an outage, our system recognizes your phone number and matches it with your account location. Accurate information helps our outage management system predict the location and possible cause of an outage, making it easier for our crews to correct the problem.
While we always do our best to maintain service, we occasionally plan outages so can safely update, repair, or replace equipment. In these instances, we can provide advance notification to affected members through automated phone messages, if we have your updated contact information and communication preferences.
Keeping the co-op updated with your information also helps us when there’s a question about high-energy use or billing. In addition, discrepancies on your account can be taken care of promptly if Lynches River has accurate account information.
Many of you have been members of the co-op for years, and it’s likely that your account information hasn’t been updated for some time. We recognize that many members now use a cell phone as their primary phone service, and we might not have that number in our system.
I want to emphasize that in providing your contact information to the co-op, we will never share this information with any third parties. It is only used by Lynches River Electric to send important information to you. Please take a moment to confirm or update your contact information by logging into your member portal at lynchesriver.com or by calling the member services line at (843) 672-6111 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. By doing so, you will be helping us improve service and efficiency so we can better serve you and all members of the co-op.
