OG&E crews to assist in Hurricane Isaac power restoration efforts

Oklahoma City, August 29, 2012 — OG&E Electric Services sent 71 employees on their way to Louisiana to assist with power restoration following Hurricane Isaac.

Crews will assist Cleco Power with restoration efforts. OG&E team members will stage at Cleco's corporate headquarters in Pineville, La., and from there will be dispatched to various areas in need of additional support.

More than 500,000 are without power in south Louisiana.

OG&E is a member of the Southeast Electric Exchange, which dispatches mutual assistance teams in cases of widespread outages. OG&E crews assisted the same area in 2008 in the wake of Hurricane Gustav.

OG&E, a unit of Oklahoma City-based OGE Energy Corp., serves more than 794,000 electric customers in Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
