CPU is Looking Out for Customers as Winter Approaches
Our winter weather tips will give you peace of mind
Even though our winters are not as dramatic as other seasons, every now and then Clarksdale gets an arctic blast that wreaks havoc on power lines, trees and pipes.
At CPU, we prepare for inclement weather no matter the time of year. With temperatures dropping every day, we are sharing some tips with customers to help them prepare for winter.
Homes are usually our largest investment, so it makes sense to protect them from falling branches, frozen pipes and other wintertime hazards. CPU is doing the same for Clarksdale’s electrical system through our year-round tree-trimming and preventive maintenance programs.
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Please take a few moments to review our winter weather release and make sure you are taking the right steps now to prepare for the cold months ahead.
