CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Dominion Energy announced a planned power outage they say will impact approximately 100 customers in the Dunes West area Wednesday.

Within Dunes West, 90% of the customers effected are residents of the Cypress Pointe Subdivison.

Dominion Energy plans to perform necessary maintenance and repairs on their Dunes West facilities following a recent outage in the area, spokesperson Paul Fischer says.

The crews said they will be replacing “critical equipment” over the 11-hour planned outage, which they hope will “prevent additional or more prolonged service outages for a larger number of customers in the future."
