Batteries have arrived early!

Hello All,
An update from our last post where we thought our battery order wouldn’t arrive till Feb 17th. Well today is the 12th and they’re here! Well they’re there I mean. In Moke Hill. See I’m still in Oakland, till tomorrow so I won’t be able to replace them until late Friday or early Saturday. I am going to try and get back as early as possible so I can get started right away. Sorry for all the inconvenience this has caused. This new battery bank should handle the winter months with much more stability.

Thank you

    I got off work early. I am headed back now. Looks like we may be able to get this tower up today.

    Mike Dell’Orto was kind enough to haul the batteries most of the way up the hill for me using his tractor. I just need to carry them up the last stretch which is the steepest part but it’s only approximately 300ft from the top. Four batteries, four trips, 77 lbs a battery, may take a little while. I hope to have everything back online in the next couple hours.

    Service has been restored. All customers should be back online with the exception of Happy Valley. I will need to go out to Happy Valley first thing in the morning to get those customers back online, but it’s a simple fix that will only take 5 minutes.
