street light update

Several street lights have been out for nearly a month. Duke Energy's customer service said they have been extraordinarily busy with Google, AT&T and Verizon cutting lines all over Durham (and other cities in NC). Now that Google Fiber is done in our neighborhood, they said HVN would be serviced as quickly as possible.

Street Light Outages and Google digging

You may have noticed a number of street lights out around HVN. With Google digging up our neighborhood, a number of underground street light lines have been cut. We as neighbors need to report these outages. Google workers aren't here after dark and Duke doesn't know when lines are cut.

To report an outage online, go to this website:

To report by phone call: 800.POWERON (800.769.3766).

You will need to know the address of the street light pole or the pole number (on the pole itself). It may be helpful to report that Google is digging in the neighborhood.
